Just a concern........... Are any monies going to a seperate account which is either independently managed or has I dunno - trustees?
I only ask because there was a situation here where a young boy was very sick and I can't say much about it BUT you have to cover yourself legally in case there are any not nice people out there that want to trip you up...... and claim that you didn't spend the money on exactly what it was asked for.
Please cover your own back...... and don't leave yourself open to that.
Trust you 110% and more, but this is a public forum and because of the case that happened here I just would want to make sure you're protected.
Sorry, I don't know enough about it but felt the need to say.........
You may have it all sorted...........
Yes it should read
So, how is the money being managed?
For the reasons I cited above......
You need to set up a charity i think,
someone who knows more will come along soon.
Mick. Get set up as a registered charity to protect youself legally.....
Having done this people who do donate will be able to opt for 'Gift Aid' if they pay tax.
This means the government will give you around an extra 28p for every £1 donated that has been marked by the donator for 'gift aid'.
This will make a tremendous amount of difference to you without costing the donator a penny more.
eg. £10 donation = £12.80 to the charity.
Giood Luck and keep us up to date.
i am asking you all now please
can someone advise us what to do, how where etc PLEASE
The Charity Commission website, all the answers to becoming a charity should be on here.
Sorry I haven't answered your mail yet Mick. We did meet, in the pub after the Luton marathon last year
Mick, G has a charity and the money can only be obtained through two of the three trustees this way I can't drink it all down the pub
by the way neither GM or I are Trustees if anyone was think that
Please be so kind and sponsor us, to help keep us running 50 plus races a year
