Saltram House Fun Run

Saltram HouseIt’s Saturday 20 September …. welcome to the newest Fun Run on the block !

TASTE supporters in Plymouth are meeting together in the picturesque setting of Saltram House to raise funds for the community in Rahwol Chom.

The difference between Saltram House and the houses in Rahwol Chom could not be bigger!Rahwol Chom

Rahwol Chom is  a poor Rural Community in Central Nigeria which needs a clean water supply as their two existing wells are not sufficient to meet the needs of its population. During the dry season there are long queues as one of the wells always dries up. The problem of long queues is exacerbated by the community being situated close to Plateau State Polytechnic which has a large student population.

This Fun Run is part of the fund-raising activities that will result in the construction of two hand pump operated boreholes which, as well as serving the needs of the local community and supporting local construction businesses, will benefit current students and help attract prospective students.

We really need you to get your friends involved with sponsorship and by far the easiest (and least painful) way is by setting up a Justgiving page.  That way, you just need to e-mail your friends and they can get out their plastic and support you …job done!  And, help to allow you to make the most of the Justgiving resource is here.

But, if you’d prefer the original face:face ask, then we’ve got a downloadable sponsorship form below:

Fun Runs boost funds

Some years we have struggled with the damp and cold.  This year it was red-hot ….. at least in Sheffield.  And our faithful supporters were, as always, up to the challenge.

Our North wales event has been going for about half the time of the Sheffield event but, in terms of income, it is closing in fast on ‘big brother’.  Our supporters that covered the 5k in Wrexham have so far raise £970.  If only another form would arrive with thirty quid!

In Sheffield, on probably the hottest fun run of the last 10 years, our Patron Dan walker was amongst the runners who raised £2600.  Special mention to the X-Cel team who, as you can see form our picture, turned out in strength.

New CEO for TASTE

It is not very often that TASTE makes a big announcement. However, today is an exception. TASTE has a new Chief Executive. With effect from 1 May 2012, Ben Udejiofo will become CEO TASTE, replacing Steve Horton, who is taking on a full-time role with Wycliffe Church in Sheffield.  Steve will be moving back to his role of enthusiastic TASTE volunteer.

TASTE has been searching for a replacement for Steve since the middle of January and Ben comes as a real answer to prayer. Not only does he know TASTE inside out, his circumstances mean that he is able to take up the post on a full-time basis, something which Steve was unable to do.

However, never having funded a full-time CEO before will present certain financial challenges and the Trustees have committed themselves to finding the means to pay Ben a fair full-time salary. This is one of Steve’s last CEO challenges and he would love to hear from anyone who could make a monthly standing order towards Ben’s salary.  Contact Steve, in confidence, at steve@taste.org.uk.

Final, departing words from Steve?
“There cannot be anyone, anywhere in the world, that has a better grasp than Ben of what TASTE is about.  Exciting times are ahead!”

Bribery Act Workshop

The Bribery Act 2010

Seen as one of the toughest pieces of anti corruption legislation in the world, The Bribery Act 2010 came into full force in July 2011. By October 2011, it had already been used to successfully prosecute a UK court official. Although it is early days, it is likely that UK funders will very soon require all recipients of funds to show that they are complying with the legislation set out in the Bribery Act.

To help Nigerian NGOs, TASTE is running a one-day workshop in Jos on Tuesday 20th March (repeated on Thursday 22nd March). All the details are on this flier.
