Quakers in Britain finances in good shape
More was spent on Quaker work in 2022 than in 2021, and with 2023 looking like another strong year, Quakers in Britain will be able to maintain its momentum.
The work discerned by Quakers across the Yearly Meeting is more vital than ever at this time of climate injustice, a cost-of-living crisis and two violent conflicts on the edge of Europe.
Paul Whitehouse, Britain Yearly Meeting treasurer, said: “This year, my first year at BYM treasurer has been both challenging and rewarding.
“As many of you know, we've struggled with a change to our systems, causing a delay to the accounts.
“But our financial position is strong – our investments have recovered after a drop last year and income remains steady."
Friends will have an opportunity to ask Caroline Nursey, clerk of trustees, and Paul Whitehouse, Yearly Meeting treasurer, about the 2022 report and accounts at a special session on Wednesday, 29 November from 7-8pm.
