30th April 2024

Dear Colleagues,

               Kidderminster PGMC Trustees Report for 2023/24

Accounts for the year ending 4th April 2024 confirm a balance of £90,588 in the Societyís reserves, down from £98,727 in 2022/23. At the same time the Trustís income from our COIF Fixed Interest Investment has declined again to £2,138 and the capital sum invested has depreciated by a little over £3,882 to £89,614. As a result of this rather modest investment income, and the expenditure of another £14,000 on five more bursary awards, the excess of expenditure over income is down to £8,139. This compares with a negative balance of £22,129 in the previous financial year.

For the 2022/23 academic year, Birmingham Medical School had put forward as the choice for their bursary allocation, Megan Larkin, who was financially deserving, and her end of year report has been posted on the Societyís website together with those of the other recipients for that year.

For the 2023/2024 academic year, Birmingham Medical School have withdrawn their graduate entry medicine course and therefore no longer qualify for a specific bursary allocation and our trustees met in the Education Centre towards the end of last year to consider applications for the remaining bursary. Contact had again been made with all 30 plus medical schools in the UK and these prompted four application with clear cut connections to the Wyre Forest area. These included William McKay, Henry Budden, Fallon Routledge-Carson and Olivia Baker, all of whom had local addresses and/or had attended local schools. All four applicants were considered worthy of our bursary and were awarded the full value of £3,000 each.

For all of the above account details we are again extremely grateful for the service generously provided by Gordon Cox. Please let me know if these accounts, or any other matters in this report, need further clarification.

                                        Best wishes,

                                        Martin Lewis, Chairman of the Trustees.
