Excellent news! Today, Devon Freewheelers gained official charity status from the Charity Commission. This means that we can officially collect money as a registered charity and, more importantly, claim Gift Aid on appropriate donations, gaining up to an extra 28% on money received.

Our official donation processor is Charity Giving, administered by The Hope Trust. This enables us to receive donations on-line from anywhere in the world, in a variety of different ways. Credit cards are processed by the trust, and the money transferred to our account.

All in all, a very exciting day for DFW - only to be surpassed by the fun we'll be having at the AGM tomorrow! Miss it at your peril.
