Kidderminster PGMC Trustees Report for 2021/22
Accounts for the year ending 4th April 2022 confirm a balance of £120,856 in the Societyís reserves, down from £132,867 in 2020/21. At the same time the Trustís income from our COIF Fixed Interest Investment has declined again to £3,382 and the capital sum invested has depreciated by a little over £10,000 to £117,071. As a result of this rather modest investment income, and the expenditure of another £6,085 on two more bursary awards, the excess of expenditure over income is up to £12,011. This compares with a lower negative balance of only £7,553 in the previous financial year.
For the 2020/21 academic year, Birmingham Medical School had put forward as the choice for their bursary allocation, Harriet Mintz, from Warwick, and her end of year report has been posted on the Societyís website together with those of the other two recipients for that year, Beth Stinchcombe and Helen Field.
For the 2021/22 academic year, Birmingham Medical School nominated Emma Porter, from Selly Oak who had previously been awarded an Msci Biology 1st Class Degree by Sussex University, and our trustees met electronically towards the end of last year to consider applications for the second bursary. Contact had again been made with all 30 medical schools in the UK and, of the applications received, none had any direct residential links to Wyre Forest. However, one, Bahishta Sidiqi, had worked as a pharmacist at Worcestershire Royal Hospital. Her application was supported by an impressive CV and excellent references and your trustees agreed unanimously that she was fully deserving of the second KMS bursary.
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.
Martin Lewis, Chairman of the Trustees.
