This Monday 11 October at 7pm we'll be hosting an 'ask us anything’ drop-in session on the topic of charities.

If you have questions about becoming a charity, your charity status or charity governance then you can get advice from the team.

You may be unsure of what your charitable purpose is as a band, or if you have one at all. Or, you might want to find out more about the financical benefits available to charity organisation, such as tax relief of access to gift aid.

Sign up for the Charities virtual drop-in session
