Fantastic news!!! After two attempts our group has been fully recognised by the HMRC allowing us to claim Gift Aid on donations. We have built a full constitution which the HMRC accepted after some changes from the first draft which had been rejected. It means that not only is the group run lawfully and fairly but also shows larger companies who may wish to donate that we are a well-run and a forward thinking group. We have learned from history that we do not wish to just remain a small Facebook page group but one that reaches out into the community to try to help others far more than ever before. A HUGE thank you to Nicky from the entire group for her amazing help in sorting out the second draft. Had it not been for her hard work we may still be on the fiftieth draft!
