Search is on for new PFRA chair

The Public Fundraising Regulatory Association plans to widen its remit to include working with local authorities.

The change in focus will coincide with the appointment of a new chair to replace Timothy Hornsby, who has been in the role for the five years since the PFRA's launch and has decided to leave because of other work pressures.

Mick Aldridge, the body's chief executive, said: "When we were in the start-up phase, our main focus was getting the Charities Act up and running, but now the Charities Act is done and we have a new agenda to get local authorities to embrace fundraising in public places. There will be a change in pace and strategic direction now."

He said that the ideal candidate to replace Hornsby would be a local government official who understands how local government works.
