We are delighted to let you know that we heard in March from the HMRC. They have approved our application and we are now recognised as a Charitable organisation for tax purposes. This means that donators can be confident in BAM Support UK's charitable integrity and we can also claim additional gift aid on the fundraising donations we receive.
Our next steps are to continue to strive towards gaining the higher level of Charity status with the Charity Commission. Having this higher status level will enable us to knock on many more doors to apply for grants to support the charities work in raising awareness of the condition and funding essential research into improving the quality of lives for people suffering with BAD. However, before we can apply for this status we need to raise an income of £5,000. So please do take a look at our fundraising initiatives in this newsletter to see how you can support us - every penny will help and it's amazing how quickly it all adds up.
