New Year, New Beginnings, New Status

Message from Ian Cunningham, Club Treasurer

As we start the new year I am pleased to tell all members that we have received Charitable Status. We have been entered on the Scottish Charity Register with the charity number SCO41013. As a consequence of this we will require to put the following on all documentation that the club has, e.g. website, membership forms, letters, etc.: Edinburgh Athletic Club, registered charity, No SC041013

Six Trustees have been appointed to take our new status forward.

  • Honorary President – Donald Gorrie
  • Club President – Barry Craighead
  • Vice President – Moira Macguire
  • Secretary – Pat Sinclair
  • Head Coach – Bill Walker
  • Treasurer – Ian Cunningham

Their responsibility in conjunction with the Executive committee is to take Club forward from a strategic point of view and also ensure we uphold the standards required of our new status.

The main reason for seeking charitable status was to seek new ways to fund the club. Clearly your membership fees are crucial to the financial wellbeing of the club, but we cannot survive on this alone. The Trustees will for instance be looking to set up a “friends of Edinburgh Athletic Club” to hopefully seek financial contributions to the running of the club from previous members, parents, people interested in athletics. We will also be looking to seek funding from other charities and indeed any source possible.  Any ideas to assist in this regard would be most welcome – please send any ideas, contacts to me at cunnie@blueyonder.co.uk.

Lets hope for another successful year as we look to take the club forward.

Best wishes for 2010.

Ian Cunningham
Club Treasurer
