Trustees Annual Report 1st April 2020 to 31st March 2021

All charities in England and Wales that are registered with the Charity Commission are required by the Charities Act to prepare a Trustees Annual Report.

FoAM’s Trustees Annual Report for 1st April 2020 to 31st March 2021 has been prepared using the Charity Commission’s pro-forma.

Minutes of FoAM’s 22nd AGM

As a result of the pandemic, FoAM’s 22nd AGM was held by Zoom at 7.00pm on Monday 17th May.

The meeting was attended by 25 members of FoAM and 2 ex-officio committee members also attended. The Minutes of the meeting can be found here.

The Treasurer’s Annual Report for 2020/21 was approved at the meeting and is attached to the Minutes.

A thank you to those members who were able to attend the meeting and to all FoAM’s members for continuing to support the group through these unprecedented times.

Treasurer’s Report for 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021

Over the years, the number of financial transactions has grown to the point where the simple Excel spreadsheet we have used to manage our finances was no longer fit for purpose. To overcome this, the Committee decided to use Moneyminder, which is a simple accounting package designed for non-profit organisations and our Treasurer’s Report for the financial year 2020/21 has been prepared using this package.

As this is the first year the package has been used, there is no detailed comparison shown against previous years. However, the overall bank balance at £27,726.32 remains very healthy, with a small increase of £159.65 over the year.

The Annual Report for 2020/21 in the new format can be found here.

The Report will be presented to FoAM members at our AGM, to be held by Zoom at 7.00pm on Monday 17th May 2021.
