Rainy Day Trust looks to deliver new services after being granted CIO status

Published:  02 January, 2017

The Rainy Day Trust (RDT) announced today that it has been granted Charitable Incorporated Organisation status by the Charity Commission. 

The change is effective from 1 January, 2017 and means that it can evolve and grow, delivering new services in partnership with both industry and other charities.

As part of the change, the Trust has been given a new charity registration number of 1170878. Rainy Day Trust chief executive officer Bryan Clover said: "This is great news for us as it means that we can grow quickly and effectively. We will be able to work much more closely with our partners and help people in new ways. It marks the beginning of an exciting phase for the trust."

The name of the Charity will remain the same, but some changes will be necessary, and the RDT is asking anyone who has an existing Rainy Day Trust collection tin to contact them and the Trust will arrange to have a new one sent out. "One thing that we would ask is that anyone who has a collection tin of ours returns it to us as soon as possible so that we can re-issue new ones with our new charity registration number on it," said Mr Clover.

"The Rainy Day Trust has grown substantially over the last 12 months, and that growth looks set to continue," he concluded.

For more information on how to replace your old Rainy Day Trust collection tins, call 0121 237 1132. Beneficiaries or anyone who needs assistance from the Trust should call 0203 192 0486.
