GKC accepted for charitable status

Glasgow Kayak Club has been incorporated as a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organization (SCIO) for the purpose of promoting the sport of kayaking.   This gives the club a legal status and opens new opportunities for fundraising.  There should be very little change in the normal operation of the club, but as we are now a legal entity members now have a legal responsibility to 

  • act in the interests of the club
  • seek, in good faith, to ensure the club acts in a manner which is consistent with its charitable purpose
