As you will notice, the accounts are laid out very differently this year. This is because the Isle of Man Charities Commission has now adopted only 2 recognised formats and the version our accountants are now using is the simplified one which, I am hoping, will be easier to understand.
Obviously, we have not been able to undertake our regular fund-raising events in the last year due to the lockdowns, but can I thank all of our members who contributed by donations, encouraging people to join, or contributed to our collection boxes around the island.
As you will see, we have made a loss this year, but if anyone has any questions about the accounts please do not hesitate to contact me either by email ([email protected]) or via phone on 01623 882231 or via text on 07732 416399. Thank you ever so much. The provisional accounts may be examined and downloaded by clicking here
Here one learns some of the basic truths of human experience, of human struggle and rivalry, of exultancy and despondency.
Here one learns the incredible facts of human nature, of grit and ambition, of subtlety and cunning, of wisdom and folly, jealously, duplicity and all the flames of human passion.
It is here that one discovers men whose word is their bond, where character shines under disappointment and disillusionment.
Here one sees the lone hand earnestly pursuing the road to fame - the diehards too, seeking for honours still.
Here one sees the big business at work with all its might."
Gilbert Smith, MD of Norton circa 1935
