Charity Status Confirmed
Tue, 23 Jul 2019 00:00
The Club has received confirmation from the Charities Commission of their approval of our request to convert our legal status to a "Charitable Incorporated Organisation" (CIO). This means that we can conduct business as a legal entity, managed by trustees with limited liability. We were previously a Sports Club with two named individuals having personal liability. Thank you to those have taken responsibility for this in the past,
This change of legal status should also assist with fundraising, and has enabled us to progress our discussions with BANES on a "Community Asset Transfer" - as explained in earlier news items. More to follow on this in due course.
