It appears that another voluntary organisation has been shafted by the SIC.
Are you saying Promote Shetland are a voluntary organisation? If not, who?
They are run by the Shetland Amenity Trust which is a voluntary organisation, ie not a sole trader, limited company or government body.
I've always been under the impression the Amenity Trust was a registered charity with paid employees. Okay, folk maybe volunteer piecemeal to participate in certain Amenity Trust short term initiatives, such as the cleanup, but i wasn't aware they maintained a signed up team of permanent volunteers to be called upon when needed, in the same way as say the lifeboat or some rural fire stations do, which is usually what is understood to be the typical definition of 'voluntary organisation'.
Charities are voluntary organisations because the trustees are all volunteers who give up their time for no financial gain.
