Message from the Chair of Trustees of Sight Cymru To all Members, Colleagues ,Volunteers and Supporters.
It is with much regret that I have to inform you of the Trustees decision to cancel or at least postpone, this years AGM of Sight Cymru due to take place in July.
The Trustees debated the practicality of holding the AGM in the current situation that the country faces due to Covid-19. We considered that many of our normal attendees have themselves underlying health issues and indeed may be officially shielded. We reluctantly concluded, that in order to comply with social distancing, only travelling for essential purposes and the safety of all possible attendees, that the AGM should not be held for the foreseeable future.
In order to clarify the legal position regarding our decision we have sought advice from our external Auditors and from advice published by the Charity Commission. Accordingly the minutes of our last Trustees meeting report this decision in order to ensure and demonstrate good governance of the Charity. We will prepare our Annual Report and Accounts in the usual way and ensure that these are sent to the Charity Commission in the usual time scale.
Your Trustees do not underestimate the challenges facing Sight Cymru at this time . Financially we face a significant deficit and accordingly we must closely examine how and where our services to clients are delivered as we do not believe that things will be as they were before the lock down. Nevertheless, let me assure you that the Trustees have the needs and safety of our clients and our staff at the forefront of our minds at this time.
Once again an apology for not having an AGM and a really big thank you to all involved with this excellent charity within Wales.
Phillip Davies- Chairman of Trustees at Sight Cymru.
