PILTON GREEN MAN CIO successfully registered with Charity Commission
On 14th December 2016 the Pilton Green Man CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation or, rather more simply, Trust) was successfully registered with the Charity Commission. Creation of the Trust limits the liability of the organising Committee whilst at the same time providing the opportunity to redistribute any profits from Green Man Day for charitable causes which will benefit the people of Pilton.
Registration came at the end of a year long process in which the Trust's objectives were gradually refined. These can be seen by going to the Objectives page of this website where you can also find the Constitution of the CIO. The Pilton Green Man Committee, which organises and runs the popular day in July, continues to operate exactly as it did before. It is now a sub-committee of the Trust. Pilton Theatre Productions, which currently runs the Pilton Panto in February each year, is also a sub-committee of the Trust. The Trust organisation can be seen on the Organisation page of this website.
If you think you have a charitable idea which might qualify for an award from the Trust, please go to the How to get an Award page of this website. This sets out what could qualify and how to apply for an award. We have yet to make any awards, but as soon as these have happened we will provide details of Current Projects on that page of the website.
Annual reports for the Charity Commission will be produced every January, starting in 2018, and these will be posted on the website page Annual Reports.
There are currently eight Trustees of the Pilton Green Man CIO and details are given on the Trustees page. If you would like to discuss ideas for charitable activities within Pilton, please contact a Trustee or email the Trust through the Contact Us page.
