Charities

Spring Grove's constitution has always required us to collect and donate to charity.  Here is a list of charities we, and our associated side Kingston Morris (since 2012), have supported and, where noted in old AGM minutes, the sums donated.  Sadly the more detailed Treasurer's reports have not survived.  It produces an interesting view on the health of the side over the years and when there was less activity and consequentially less collecting.  
 
2017 supporting All About Alie
2016   £1000    Home-Start
2015   £1000    Teenage Cancer Trust  
2014   £1000    Age UK split between Kingston and Richmond branches
2012    £823    British Heart Foundation
2011    £800    Shooting Star Trust and Born Too Soon
2010            No comment in the AGM minutes
2009            Shooting Star Trust and Ladder To The Moon
2008   £1000    Kingston Can
2007    n/a     Due to the careless loss of a Treasurer no charity was set, so double bubble next year.
2006     £22.50 Alzheimer’s Society
2005    £220    "Pat Nash's cancer charity"
2004-1999       No AGM minutes survive
1998    £207    Undefined "charitable donations"
1997    £180    Save the Children, Shopmobility, Meningitis Society, Macmillan Nurses, Imperial Cancer Research
1996    £100    Save the Children
 
Prior to 1996 charitable donations are not mentioned in the AGM minutes.  After a request in the 1995 minutes that donations are recorded in the minutes, they are now (mostly) declared each year.
