Charitable cuts?

THE ALTHING debating society is to tackle a political hot potato at its first session in the New Year when Shetland Charitable Trust’s budget cuts are scrutinised.

Speakers Ian Tinkler and Johan Adamson will promote the motion that ‘the charitable trust cuts are not charitable’, while trustees Jonathan Wills and Jeemie Smith are to defend the actions of the trust.

In an attempt to attract more people to the Althing, the debate on Saturday 16 January at 7.30pm has been moved from its usual venue in the Tingwall Hall to the Staney Hill Hall in the north of Lerwick.
