Santa Stork

The Mayor, Cllr Bray, joined members of The Redhill Business Guild and The Belfry Management team in early December to help gift wrap presents for Stripey Stork’s Santa Stork campaign.

This year the Reigate-based charity has helped over 7,300 disadvantaged children across Surrey. It provides gifts for those who really need a helping hand at this difficult time of year. These gifts are new and in some cases will be the main or only present that child will receive this Christmas.

Avoid financial fraud and errors in your Not for Profit Organisation

We recently read about the following:
1) Man jailed for £120,000 fraud against charity
2) Woman jailed for her part in £2m fraud against religious charity.
3) Publications from The Charity Commission show that charities reported almost £8.6 million of lost funds in the last financial year.

You can take actions to avoid this happening in your organisation. 
Join Bim from AE Accountax Ltd in the webinar on Friday 7 January to find out:
1) What set-ups and internal controls that you need to put in place.
2) How you can harness the power of cloud technology in financial control; and 
3) How to recognise your need.
