Led by the Office for Civil Society, Local Charities day is being held on Friday 15th December. The aim of the day is to highlight the work of small charities that are making a huge difference in their communities. It is also a chance for individuals who are making a special effort devoting their time in helping others and for those unsung heroes to celebrate their achievements.
Many Men in Shed projects operate as small charities, often choosing the Charitable Incorporated Organisation structure which provides both a registered charity number and incorporated status that gives protection to trustees.
Within this small charity structure projects make big differences to the people they support. On Local Charities Day the Essex Shed Network would like to recognise and thank the many volunteers that support Sheds in Essex and across the UK.
