Letters / Less than a week to rescue the trust

There is now less than a week left for the people of Shetland to give their views on the future of Shetland Charitable Trust.

Any comments received by the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) after next Thursday, 23 February, will be ignored.

If you are happy that the trust has a permanent majority of unelected members, and probably no elected trustees at all, in perpetuity, you need do nothing.

If you believe that the £240m and more of trust assets should be restored to democratic control by an elected majority of trustees, please write to OSCR today.

The address is:
OSCR – Charity Reorganisation
2nd Floor
Quadrant House
Riverside Drive

… or you can send an email to: info@oscr.org.uk, or you complete the comment form in this week’s Shetland Times.
