Welcome to this week’s diary post. In the last entry, I mentioned that we are pulling together all the information we need for our application to the Charity Commission.
One element is the requirement for a minimum of three trustees to sit on the board… well, fabulous news… we have our third trustee! Oscar Humphries (@oscarhumphries) the fine art dealer, journalist and publisher of The Art Book. Oscar is a keen dog lover and last year adopted the beautiful Millie from Anca (@anca_miki) in Romania. Another requirement for our application is to have a bank account set up – all that got posted off today. We are two steps closer to formal registration.
The website’s development is also well under-way and a grand unveiling will happen in a week or two… Next stop is defining our funding strategy and speaking to the accountant about tax relief, gift aid, bookkeeping and VAT.
