one God, now and for ever.

The evening will be split into two sessions:
‘The Charity Trustees’ Toolkit’ In the first session, from 6.30 p.m. – 7.30 p.m., Colin and Sarah will cover a variety of topics including the process for Trustee selection, Risk Management together with recent changes and current issues.
