More savings have been found to increase the budgets of the Events & Campaigns. The £700 savings come primarily from cutting funding for lobbying, as well as social media advertising, which both Stace Williams & Steven Haynes argued was “ineffective”.
Money has also been found again for the Welsh & Scottish grants, totalling £500, despite the money being secured earlier in the year before Sam & Kavya were co-opted.
Further unspecified cuts were also discussed, but not minuted, at last Saturday’s Executive Meeting. Further details will be revealed when the new budget is published shortly.
