News: CFG Fraud Guide

CFG launches new guide and checklist for small charities on preventing fraud.

As Small Charities Week focuses attention on the excellent work of small charities, CFG launches its Counter Fraud Campaign and has produced a free guide and checklist for you to protect your charity and it's assets from fraud.

The Small Charities Guide to Preventing Fraud will help small charities to outline the steps you need to take to protect yourselves against fraud, highlight what tell-tale signs to look out for, know what to do once you have detected fraud and where to report the fraud to. 

To compliment The Small Charities Guide to Preventing Fraud, CFG has also produced a Counter Fraud Checklist. This checklist is designed to help charities to establish or strengthen their counter-fraud policy. The checklist asks ten essential questions that all charities should be thinking about when working to tackle fraud.

News: Sustainable Hayfield AGM

July 20th at Royal Hotel, Hayfield, 7.30pm, only lasts 20 minutes followed by a very informative and uplifting talk from Joe Margetts and Tom Aspinall from the Moors For the Future project on the underpinning science behind all the work they've been doing to conserve our local South Pennine Moors.

This is the biggest moorland conservation project in Europe (they're the ones with helicopters delivering lime and seeds to the uplands), and has an amazing impact  on the health of the local peat blanket.

Entitled 'Carbon, Climate, Water and Wildlife - the Scientific Work to combat the Catastrophe of Bare Peat', the talk will provide illustrations of the vital importance of our local peat bogs - which store the bulk of the UK's land-based carbon - and whose steady degradation over 200 years has meant increased carbon emissions, reduced water retention, increased risk of flooding, and diminished wildlife. This is all being reversed by this inspirational project.
