Coffee & cake fundraising event
Life-long TASTE supporter and local artist, John Lintern, is hosting a fund-raising event for TASTE. He and his wife will be busy baking all this week so why not pop in for a quick coffee, some excellent cake and an opportunity to view some of John’s most recent work.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!”
We have a great group of supporters!
And our fun runners are no exception.
Thank you to everyone who turned up at Weston Park in Sheffield and Alyn Waters, near Wrexham, to help us fill the TASTE coffers. Your support is very, very much appreciated, as is your overall interest and enthusiasm for our work.
Sponsored activity is a great way to help any charity and TASTE is always happy to advise and assist supporters who want to do their own thing.
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.
