Financial Review: Total income during the year was £2,709, a decrease of £874 on the previous year. However, the shortfall is due to grants received for Christmas Day Together and contributions for Lent Course materials received in 2017, which were not repeated in 2018. Total Expenditure for the year 2018 also fell to £1,995 from £2,710 in 2017 due to lower spending on the website and no expenditure on Lent Course materials. At the end of the year, the total funds available were £5,734, of which £675 were carried forward to the 2019 Christmas Day Together meal and a £200 donation towards costs of the proposed Emergency Night Shelter. Public Benefit: The Enabling Group has had due regard to the relevant public benefit guidance when exercising its powers and duties.
