A Reminder about Outstanding invoices

Please can we ask that you ensure that your account is up to date by the beginning of the term starting in January.   This is important for us so we can ensure that the transition from the Council to the new Charity can be undertaken smoothly.    Furthermore, if you still haven’t cancelled your existing standing order with the bank as we will not be able to recover it once we are a charity. Remember, we cannot cancel a standing order for you!

New Charity

There has been a slight delay in working through the due diligence process with the council, but our target date is 15th February.

We have successfully registered with the Charities Commission and our Registration No is:1179203

You will also be able to support us through Gift Aid once we have established the charity; more on that very soon.
