Today we received the news that our latest application to The Trusts Community Foundation was approved! This time we’ve been given $15,000 to upgrade some of our older iPad sets which have now reached end-of-life.
The Trusts monopoly on alcohol sales has been a topic for discussion in local media and social media lately, and it’s worth pointing out that the money we receive from The Trusts is invaluable, it has funded almost our entire ICT purchasing programme for over a decade. To see this funding source dry up just for the minor convenience of being able to buy wine at the supermarket, instead of the shop right next door to the supermarket would be crippling for us.
Since 2003 alone (as far back as the digital records go) we’ve received $231,732 from The Trusts. That’s a figure impossible to replace.
