We worked very hard over the summer months of 2016 to establish the charity formally and complete the processes required by the Charity Commission. We were very conscious that until we received their approval we shouldn’t begin to allocate the funds that we had generated.
Our formal recognition was received on 10th October 2016, and shortly after we made our first allocation of funds. Listed below are the projects that have received funding so far.
