Over the course of the financial year ending 31 March 2017 reserves have reduced by c£22k after an increase of c£15k in the previous period.  This was anticipated with spending deferred from the last financial year to manage the removal of the organisation's key funding source.  The organisation continues to maintain a strong reserve position of c£46k and will continue to invest in opportunities to secure future funding streams. 
Investment funding in the last financial year was received from sportscotland alongside membership subscriptions, patronages from Traveleads and Perkins Slade.  We are extremely grateful to our members and partners for all their support.
