LA SOLIDARITE ANGLICANE DE LILLE
“La Solidarité” is a charitable association set up by Christ Church Lille for outreach. As a religious association, under tax and accounting rules, CCL can’t itself give donations (although it can receive them, of course).
The sum available for donations is the equivalent of 10% of our income for the previous accounting year – the tithe.
Every year the committee asks for proposals and these are discussed at a special grants meeting. Everyone who is on the electoral roll of Christ Church Lille is a member of the association and can make proposals or vote at the Annual General Meeting.
The President is currently Frances Coester and the Secretary is Rosemary Ulyett. The Chaplain is an ex-officio member of the committee and there are three other committee members, Suzanne Bray, David Bolton and Peter Hawkins.
See the presentation for full details of organisations supported in 2016 and a summary of our finances/
The President and the Secretary currently share the Treasurer’s duties, which are not very onerous. If you’d like to help in this area, please speak to someone about this, you’d be very welcome.
