Rooksdown Community Association - charity dissolution

26 September 2017 at 06:21

Rooksdown Community Association has decided to start the process of converting to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO).

This process is approved and overseen by the charities commission and ensures that all liabilities and assets are transferred to the new charity.

A new CIO charity has been created with the same name and exactly the same charitable objectives but a new charity number 1174526.

A meeting is called of all voting members of the old charity and will be to:

"Resolve that Rooksdown Communtiy Association (reg charity 1142688) is dissolved and all assets and liabilities transferred to Rooksdown Community Association (reg charity 1174526)."

To be held on:

Tuesday 28th November 7.30pm
at Rooksdown Community Centre

If the resolution is carried a process will be conducted to wind up the old charity and move everything to the new one.

Residents should experience no disruption to services during this process.

Any enquiries about this process can be sent to admin@rooksdownonline.com
