The RAB Trustees held their annual meeting in May 2018. This was a momentous meeting; the last to be directed and hosted by our longstanding Chair, Rachel Douglas. With a light but firm touch, Rachel guided the trust and inspired her fellow trustees to develop it from a tentative start to a well-established and influential organisation.
The main business of the meeting was to make our awards. We received 24 applications from students at Newark School of Violin Making and South Thames College. From those we decided to make 15 financial awards totalling £5775 ranging from £90 to £580, and arranged nine work experience placements in workshops throughout the UK, from Kent to Fife.
