The trustees at Rugby Area Talent Trust have successfully applied for and been granted “registered charity” status for RATT with The Charity Commission for England and Wales. Our registered charity number is 1174109.
This marks an important milestone for the charity, which was only formed in 2015 and has until now been operating under the financial threshold for registration with the commission.
Founder and chairman David Head said “I’m so pleased about this. It’s a recognition of the value of the work we do and really helps us when we are raising funds.”
2016 was the first time that RATT’s income was enough that trustees could apply for registration, thanks to the support of the then Mayor of Rugby Cllr Mrs Sally Bragg. This year grants from Tesco and again from the mayoral charity will ensure that RATT continues to grow and thrive.
