Whitley Bay FC Womens football section have gained charitable status after having been successful in their application to be entered on the Register of Charities with the Charity Commission.
Whitley started the process back in February of this year and received the good news last week. During the application process, Whitley had to prove that their activities were for charitable purposes and for the public benefit. They also had to submit their annual accounts, review their constitution and submit other documents and evidence to the Commission.
Whitley will see immediate benefits from their charitable status in the donations and other contributions from UK tax payers will be subject of gift aid, enabling Whitley to claim 28p in the £1 from HM Revenue and Customs. They will also be able to submit applications for grants to the many trusts and organisations that only donate to registered charities.
Chairman of the Trustees and Whitley's First team manager Colin Phillips is delighted with the news, saying: "It has been a long and comprehensive application process and I am pleased that we were able to show that we are a truly community organisation established for the benefit of women and girls in our area. Achieving charitable status will not only benefit the club financially, but also allow us to focus on our real objective of providing healthy recreation for women in our community."
