Young Leaders Event Cancelled
The NFTMO Terry Edis Trust has reluctantly decided not to go ahead with the the Young Leaders event planned for this year. Only a very small number of TMOs have expressed a firm interest and the Trust cannot commit expenditure that may turn out to be wasted if the event were to fail to meet minimum target numbers..
The Terry Edis Trust Chair, Roy Read, explained that the Trustees were excited about the event but had to be certain that it would be supported before they could spend what would be a significant proportion of the Trust's funds.
The good news is that the Trust now plans to launch a small grants programme and will be willing to help with the cost when a group of young people want to visit another TMO to find out about their youth activities and involvement.
More information about the small grants programme will be published soon.
