Staines Shopmobility recently applied to the Charity Commission to form a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) and this has now been granted. The new charity is registered charity number 1157628 and will now replace the old registered charity 1072988. The members of Staines Shopmobility voted to dissolve the old charity 1072988 and to transfer its assets to the new CIO, charity number 1157628, at an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) held on the 29th of July 2014. This is currently being arranged and should be done by the end of this year, 2014. As discussed previously this change will not alter the service provided in any way and was done to enable the charity to conduct business in its own name whilst providing protection by way of limited liability to the trustees and members.
Please feel free to contact us if you would like to discuss this change further or have any questions regarding this.
