Wexford MarineWatch gets official charity status
Wexford MarineWatch says it has been approved for official Charity Status by the new Charities Regulator.
Founder member and chairman Frank Flanagan said the status is 'a result of the good Governance and Procedures operated by our organisation - it also assures anyone that is fundraising for MarineWatch that all money is being allocated appropriately and used for the purpose it has been donated.
'We are all volunteers and no-one gets paid. We receive no capital funding or grants (and) rely on the kindness and generosity of the people and businesses to keep us going,' he said.
