Trustees, Ray Eades

Dear Sir,

May I congratulate Richard Williamson on his excellent article in the Pilot No 288 where he explains with admirable clarity the responsibilities of Trustees?

There can be no doubt that Trustees are playing an increasingly important role in our society, as Government succeeds in off loading much of its social functions to the charitable sector.

When one considers the onerous burdens and duties which these good people bear on our behalf, is it not time for society to look at the question of payment for Trustees? How can one expect the Trustees of organisations with multi million turnovers to carry this burden as unpaid volunteers ?

Surely, the time is overdue for Trustees to receive a realistic salary for their work?

Yours truly

Ray Eades

Retired Liverpool / Hlumber Pilot
