HURWORTH VILLAGE HALL 

Provision and maintenance of a Hall for the use of the inhabitants of the Parish of Hurworth and the neighbourhood without the distinction of sex, political, religious, or other opinions, and in particular for use for meetings, lectures, classes, and for other forms of education, recreation and leisure-time occupation, with the object of improving the conditions of life for the said inhabitants.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been very successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • 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
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender and dynamic in terms of composition

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
  • One or more trustees receive benefits from the charity

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 recently and was significantly lower than spending in the latest year
Established: 63 years
