We are now a Registered Charity!

Monday, 9th May 2011

After what was an extremely busy spring term, and a much needed Easter break – we are so excited to be able to announce that we have finally become a Registered Charity!

All who work tirelessly on the QK House project breathed a huge sigh of relief when the initial email arrived with our Charity Number detailed. I am therefore extremely pleased to announce the following information:

Registered Charity Name: QK House
Registered Charity Number: 1141257

Becoming a registered charity means that we are now able to apply for various funding and grants so fingers crossed we manage to secure some! We are also working on setting up a ‘justgiving’ page which can be used for anyone wanting to sponsor a charity! (Looks like I will be running that marathon after all!)

In other news – we are extremely pleased to inform you that we have secured a date for the next launch event – I say launch as we are now able to hold the event as an official charity which is very exciting!!

The launch event will be held on THURSDAY 30TH JUNE 2011 and I would be delighted if you could come!

The event will provide further information about QK House, where we are at now and our future plans. It will also be a fantastic opportunity to meet with all of the people who have offered time, money, knowhow etc. Further details will be posted in the coming weeks, but please do put the date in your diary!!

Finally, an update on how our fundraising is coming along – recently we crossed the £20K mark which was an incredible feeling! We have a long way to go, and will need as much support as possible in getting there – but I have no doubt in mind about achieving our goal!

Thank you as always for checking in – more updates coming soon!!!
