The trustees would like to send a big thank you to Jon Rouse & Co Ltd. for independently verifying our annual accounts. This year our charity has done exceptionally well, so well in fact, that our income went through the threshold where we needed to have our annual accounts examined. This would normally be a significant expense, but fortunately the generosity of a local family accountancy business offered to help us out free of charge. Fantastic support from a local business. Our annual report and accounts will now be submitted to the Charities Commission and will be available for public view shortly.
