Case Study 1

A new charity to encourage rowing, canoeing and other sports capable of promoting healthy recreation is now being established, with our help. Our support for the new organisation has included advice on and drafting the articles for the company and obtaining its registration as a charity. We also advised on their agreement with Sport England for a grant towards the new facilities, as well as the property issues for the site involving the local authority and the canals and rivers trust. In addition we are currently advising on a review of the articles to accommodate other users, a members’ agreement and user agreements with a range of organisations.
