In light of recent news regarding charities holding large proportions of their income in investments, we’d like to ensure that all charities don’t get tarred with the same brush – especially us smaller charities.
To demonstrate our transparency we’d like to share a summary of our incomings, outgoings and balances of our bank account for the last month. We are not fortunate enough to have an investments portfolio, so every pound you see in these accounts is what we have to run the charity.
We have stated on numerous occasions that we need £120,000 per year to survive, £10,000 a month will cover:
Salaries for staff and workshop leaders
Maintenance of the Sunflowers Centre and utilities
Insurance for our volunteers and those who access our services
Over 1500 hours of cancer intervention
Transparency is key to any charity, taking one step inside Sunflowers is enough to see exactly how this money is spent. Speaking to any of the people who access our services is enough to see exactly how we are helping people living with cancer.
Never underestimate how much your support can help a small charity such as ourselves.
