. . . . according to the Gulf Times in an article by Anne-Sophie Laing, the Cycling & Running Trust has spent £1.8 million pounds to raise just £900,000.
Currently this leaves the trust £900,000 down on the deal. This is not good. A number of people are employed in paid positions, paid to raise funds. It would seem, if the article is to be believed, they are failing miserably.
It maybe a good thing that the CRT can bang out if they cant make the trust work.
Notably in the same story but not necessarily connected to it, one of the interviewees said, “I wanted to give Niamh (her child) a better chance by letting her grow up on the canal and showing her a better way of life”. So the baby is sat in front of the TV on a canal. Is that better?
