Due to the popularity of our company secretarial course for charities, we are once again repeating the course in June 2017. If you have not already registered your interest, please be quick as there are limited places available.

Whilst the Companies Act 2006 has removed the need for charitable companies (and any private company) to have a company secretary, the functions of the company secretary have not gone away and need to be picked up by a trustee or someone within the charitable company if a company secretary is not appointed. Failure to carry out the duties that ordinarily fall to the company secretary can see the company incur penalties. It is therefore important now more than ever that trustees fully understand the role and responsibilities of a company secretary so that they can be performed with confidence and without fear of repercussions.

The course is aimed at charitable companies and would benefit established company secretaries seeking to understand the changes brought about by the Companies Act 2006 as well as assisting new company secretaries or trustees who are looking to know the fundamentals of the job.

At the competitive price of £175, plus VAT, per person we are sure you will find the session great value for money and look forward to seeing you there. The price includes attendance, course materials, lunch and tea/coffee throughout the day. Bookings will only be confirmed once payment has been received.

You are invited to take part in Brabners Charity Challenge which takes place on Friday 30 June and will be based in Keswick in the Lake District.

We are inviting teams of three to six people to take part in this fun challenge in support of our charity of the year for 2017.

The Charity Challenge Course

The challenge consists of three stages; kayaking, cycling and fell-walking.

Kayaking

The first part of the challenge involves around an hour of kayaking on Derwentwater.

Cycling

Participants will then move straight on to the cycling stage of the challenge. This year, there will be a choice of two routes - an expert route or a shorter more 'scenic' route.

The expert route is 47km and involves 1000 metres of climbing.

The scenic route is 23km and involves 500 metres of climbing. 

Fell Walk

The challenge will conclude with a walk of the Coledale Round. The Coledale Round is a 10 mile loop starting and finishing at the Braithwaite Institute. It includes 5 Wainwright Mountains - Grisedale Pike, Hopegill Head, Crag Hill, Sail and Outerside and over 1,178 metres of climbing. For more details, please click here

In true Charity Challenge tradition, the day will finish at the Braithwaite Institute with a BBQ, drinks and the presentation of prizes. 

Are you up for the challenge?

If you think you have what it takes to take part in the challenge, sign up by completing the online registration.

Alternatively you can register by downloading the team entry form and return to Lucie Osborne by emailing events@brabners.com.

We are asking each team to provide a minimum donation of £300 for our charity of the year, which you may wish to raise from sponsorship.
