Six trustees ‘removed’ from Mayor’s Common Good Trust in dispute

 

Six trustees of the Mayor of Southwark’s Common Good Trust have rejected a vote by the charity to remove them over an ongoing dispute, saying it was “illegal”.

A vote was taken to remove the six at the beginning of October over a disagreement, but they have hit back saying it was illegal in how it was done.

Members of the charity had raised, seconded and passed the motion to remove the six, who did not want to be named, after there were arguments over how the charity was being run.

One of the trustees removed, Patrick Wentworth, called the move “illegal” and said that “as far as we’re concerned we are still full members of the charity after seeking legal advice”.

Councillor Kath Whittam, Mayor of Southwark, said: “The Mayor of Southwark’s Common Good Trust has passed a resolution to remove a number of trustees.

“In response former trustees have made comments about the charity related to time before I was a trustee.

“If these comments require any investigation, I would urge them to write to the Charity Commission or the Police so it can be done properly.”
