The Matthew Hackney Foundation
Posted 27 days ago
Good morning everyone,
Following a very successful pop up shop for our charity we have been lucky enough to find permanent premises in order to lease a shop. Our charity constitution is a foundation trust and to avoid charity trustees personal liability we have set up a CIC to sign the lease of the shop and trade selling donated goods with all profits going to the charity.
I know this is not the most cost effective way to do this and have had legal advice. I would really appreciate any help with policies and procedures for the new shop. I have everything from the Charity retail associations website and NCVO I believe. I just wondered if there are any policies/procedures that I have not thought about relating to retail?
As a CIC I also wondered if there was anything else I needed to consider please?
