At the start of the year, we committed to a New Years Resolution of seeking Charity Status by the Charity Commission.
This involved a large amount of work, including the drafting and passing of new Constitution, having to find two independent trustees and submitting evidence to the Charity Commission on our aims, objectives and management.
‘We’re trilled that that Charity Commission have granted London Cornish Pilot Gig Club Charitable Status.’ say David Callaghan, Vice-Chairman.
David continues: ‘This has been months of work by a small working group who have had to come together and ensured that the transition was going to be as smooth as possible. ‘
‘Now that we have Charitable Status we’ll be spending time in this initial transition period doing the final few moves required and setting up processes to benefit from our new legal status.’
‘We’d like to thank our working group, members, governing body and fellow gig rowing clubs who have helps and supported us on this move.’
