What is a Charity?

The law says what activities are charitable. These include things like preventing or relieving poverty, advancing the arts, culture, religion, heritage, science and education.There must be a public benefit, so it has to do positive things, for people's benefit without discrimination.

Charities may not make profits. All the money they raise has to go towards achieving their aims.

A  body is not a charity unless it is registered. Barmoor trustees will consider letting to non-registered organisations with similar objects.
