Legacy provides financial boost

Our 2023-24 end of year accounts show income significantly outstripped our expenditure in the last financial year, thanks largely to a wonderful legacy from Raymond Bissell, for which we are exceedingly grateful.

This meant that as well as providing some extra treats and activities for the children we could put aside funds for the future building project.

Our administrative costs remain minimal as Batemans has no paid employees in the UK. Trustees and volunteers all give generously of their time to manage the accounts, copywriting, designing, fundraising, policy-writing and all the other responsibilities involved in running a small charity.

An enormous thank-you once again for all donations, big or small, which allow the children and young people we support to fulfil their potential.
