Leeds Day Support of Addenbrooke's Free Will Scheme 2014
The Wills and Estate Planning Team at Leeds Day were delighted to participate in Make a Will Week in association with Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust earlier this year.
We prepared Wills for clients without charge for a week in May and in return clients made a donation to Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust to support improvements to patient care, facilities and research.
Together we and our clients raised £750 and we would like to thank everyone who made their Will with us and who gave such a valuable donation to such a good cause.
Although this campaign has ended, if you would like to make a Will or an appointment to discuss your requirements for a new Will or Estate Planning, please contact at us firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0844 567 2222 and ask to speak with a member of our helpful and friendly team.
On 1 July 2016, the Charity Commission launched a consultation on how it proposes to use its new power in section 1 of the Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act 2016 to issue official warnings to charities and charity trustees, as set out in draft guidance.
Commission unlikely to charge charities for filing accounts
The Charity Commission's head of compliance monitoring, Neville Brownlee, reassured a public meeting this week that a portal for joint filing of a charitable company's accounts with the Commission and Companies House is a “much more likely outcome” than charging charities fees to file their accounts with the Commission.
