The Kambia Appeal becomes a CIO

The Kambia Appeal is now a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO). This is a new form of legal entity designed for non-profit organisations in the United Kingdom. The main intended benefits are that it has legal personality, the ability to conduct business in its own name, and limited liability so that its members and trustees will not have to contribute in the event of financial loss. The only change supporters will see is that the Charity Registration Number with the Charity Commission has changed from 1014034 to 1172123. Disconcertingly the Charity Commission website says that charity 1014034 – The Kambia Appeal – has ceased to exist! Rest assured we are still going strong in our new form!
