October 2021 Newsletter

News from the trustees

In late September the trustees had the opportunity to consult with two friends of the charity who are active in the UK corporate sector on ways to develop our social media marketing and fundraising capacities. The importance of platforms such as Twitter and Instagram was discussed in marketing our partner programmes to a potential new set of donors. We are still in the early stages of this investigative discussion and will keep you informed as to how the Board decides to move forward.

We were happy to receive positive news from Southall Trust in August that they have granted £3000 to support SSF activities in eSwatini. This is the fourth time that this small grant making charitable organisation has funded BASED UK supported activities for which we are very grateful.

Thank you again to those who completed our online survey. Some of you expressed an interest in volunteering in administration, fundraising or managing social media and we are grateful for these offers. The Project Focus section of the Newsletter allows us an opportunity to go into further detail about the programmes we support and we hope this edition responds to some of those survey requests. There is still one more week left to complete the survey. We would love to hear from you. Please click on the link to share your thoughts with the trustees
