3G Pitch Latest Update

Hi All, some great news to communicate but first please remember this link and promote: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/michael-creffield?utm_term=nVkm6mEb9

PLANNING PERMISSION UPDATE

Planning permission for the 3G at KGV in Effingham was submitted back on the 25th of January (see attached plans if you fancy it), which have been approved today (15.03.19), we have answered all of their questions succinctly and positively. We got the support of Guildford Borough Council, Effingham Parish Council and EFFRA (Residents Association) and of course EVRT so that’s great news. With Planning Permission approved this should allow us to meet our deadlines to start work early in May for completion mid June. We sincerely believe that we are close to getting to where we want to and virtually on time. I think we may well be completed before Brexit !

CASC FOR THE COLTS WHAT IT MEANS

Bookham Colts is now a Community Amateur Sports Club, (CASC). Big deal you may say but it actually says a lot about our club and its part in the community. Most importantly it helps us raise funds in a tax efficient way from all donations from now on and it will get individuals tax benefits from this government. It’s very similar to Gift Aid and applies to the individual, here’s an example of what you claim.
Example

You donate £100 to Bookham Colts CASC – we claim Gift Aid to make your donation £125. If you pay 40% tax so you can personally claim back £25.00 (£125 x 20%) at the end of the year.

Our CASC No for reclaiming tax is No: 061000052951, a refund form can be found here: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/468015/CASC_GAD_Single_Donation.pdf

ROAR DEAL FROM LEATHERHEAD LIONS

Hot off the press, we have received a donation of £1,000 from the Leatherhead Lions to go towards the 3G, We met all of the criteria for improving sports and recreations for the children of the area. Thanks to all involved in securing that and to the Lions for their help.

SHANLEY FOUNDATION HELP OUT AGAIN

SHANLEY HOMES (a local provider of new homes in case you were unaware) have been generous to us yet again by donating a further £3,000 to the 3G fund, following their contribution in 2017 supporting kit and the club in general. Many thanks to the Foundation for their support over the past few years.

Kind regards
Mike
