HORDEN CENTENNIAL CENTRE (HCC) 

Our community venue is a centre for regeneration; a fully equipped community venue open to all where people can meet, eat, learn, socialise, exercise and be part of community life.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government and there are significant future grants due to be received

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • The Board is predominantly male
  • The Board composition appears to be rather static

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
Established: 12 years
