PSC Trustees and Committee members meet on five occasions each year to process and consider the merits of between 30 to 40 applications for support each meeting. The committee will appraise and short list worthy applications originating in the club’s home area based on the criteria that funds should be distributed preferable within the locality where funds are raised.
Suitable applications are designated to members of the committee to investigate by visiting premises, organisation or family in order to assess their merit.
It is then reported back to a full committee meeting for appropriate consideration.
An important part of the process is to purchase items directly for the applicant. The Committee has always felt that this ensures funds go where intended and on occasions members can make savings on equipment purchased through their many business connections.
