This very well attended meeting was an opportunity to begin to make the changes that will be required in our bid to become a charity. DRS welcomed Emma Monkman who will be one of the Trustees advising us and supporting us throughout the process. Emma, who brings with her a wealth of valuable knowledge and experience, was very impressed with the progress we have made so far.
Becoming a charity will be hard work but will bring with it many benefits, not least increased funding opportunities and greater legitimacy in our efforts to raise funds and extend our reach. Please get in touch if you have any advice or ideas. We are eager learners!
