UK Charity Commission Grants Charitable Status to Every Casualty


Every Casualty (for which I’m on the Board) is now officially a charity.

The UK Charity Commission sets up hurdles for supplicants to cross to make them worthy of the Commission’s approval. This is a solemn process that builds strength.


Some requirements can seem pointless when you’re doing them but after finishing you can’t help thinking that the Commission should impose them on future applicants for all eternity.  A particularly rewarding ritual is to answer a question repeatedly across a lengthy chain of correspondence, paying a lawyer each time.

Next stop – the Bankruptcy Commission.
