THE NEW HUTTON INSTITUTE 

We hold community dances, quizes, games evenings, flower festivals, church activities, money raising for different charities. We also hire out the hall to local groups including the Primary school in the adjoining village, exercise classes, a bowling group, and to groups needing a smaller room for meetings.
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, despite a decline more recently
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government and a Community Foundation

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • Although this charity works with volunteers it does not have a Volunteer Management policy
  • This charity does not have a Conflict of Interests policy
  • The Board is completely male

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Income has been volatile and on several occasions in recent years less than spending
Established: 60 years
