Leeds Day take part in Lisa Kent Trust Charity Go-Karting Endurance Race: 4 February 2016
Leeds Day took part in the Lisa Kent Trust Charity Go-Karting Endurance Race: 4 February 2016. See how we got on!...
On 4 February 2016, Leeds Day took part in the Charity Endurance Go-Karting Race organised by Lisa Kent Trust held at Northampton Indoor Go-Karting Centre.
After a pretty good start, qualifying 5th, we moved up to 3rd place. Unfortunately, our good fortune was short-lived as we battled with the Williams F1 team and FIA Master Historic F1 Champions (yes, F1 champions...!).
We ended up 10th (out of 10) but enjoyed the race and, particularly, taking part in an incredibly worth while event to raise money for the Lisa Kent Trust. Just under £3000 was raised on the night.

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(Protection and Social Investment) Act 2016 to issue official warnings to charities and charity trustees, as set out in draft guidance.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.
