Minutes of the previous meeting

To agree the minutes of the meeting held on Thursday 7th March 2019 at Appendix A.

 

4.

Financial position

To note that the Trust normally allocates interest and preserves the capital fund.  In general, this means approximately £25k has been available in recent years.  However, the previous two years have seen allocations less than the interest earned and so there is flexibility for the Trustee to award a higher sum if that is the preference. 

 

In 2020/21 the Trust allocated £15,710 (after some grants were not taken up as a result of covid) and interest of £27,415 was earned.  In the previous year there was interest of £27,301 and grants made of £17,590.
