Charity of the Year for 2017

It has been proposed that HUG supports only ONE local charity this year. This would enable a much larger money donation to be presented to that organisation.  So, how do we choose the Charity of the Year?

Firstly, Hug members are invited to nominate any local charity.  They will then need to submit a short written description of the organisation:- including the work that it undertakes, its aims, what the donation would be used for and any other information that would assist the decision making process. These should go to Kaj for circulation to HUG members.. The closing date for nominations will be 28 February 2017.

If sufficient money is available at the end of the year, a second charity may be considered for a smaller donation.

The decision to choose the Charity of the Year will be taken at the HUG A.G.M. by vote of those Members present.
