We are now an official Registered Charity!
Thursday, 11th July 2019
Excellent news that our application to be registered as a charity with the England & Wales Charity Commission was accepted last week !
Our charity number is 1184286, which you can now see on the Register using this link to Search the Charity Register and then entering the number. More information about us will be added as we complete updates and reporting that the Charity Commission requires.
There was a quite detailed series of online forms to complete and documents to attach, including our newly adopted constitution, but, once everything was in place and checked, the decision came very quickly.
The commitee will now make sure that our charity number is quoted on our literature, business cards and so on. We will also need to register with HMRC (HM Revenue and Customs) to enable us to claim Gift Aid on donations.
So, still more to be done, but a good start has been made.
No upcoming events.
