The Committee is reliant upon donations and fund raising in order to continue putting on events for the benefit of the village and its residents. All donations go into Committee Funds. All donations received are accounted for in the Committee meeting’s minutes unless received at an event in which case they are accounted for generally by the treasurer when reporting to the committee on the amounts received from an event.
If anyone would like to donate to the Belthorn Village Committee, all contributions towards village funds are gratefully received. The Belthorn Village Committee is the generic name for The Belthorn Village Hall Fund which is a registered charity. The Committee is run by volunteers who are villagers (or connected to the village) and donate their time and effort for the benefit of the village and its residents. Any monetary donations received will go towards future village events and projects.
