We’re a charity
Bellahouston Road Runners is a charity. We are a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO), and registered on the Scottish Charity Register. Our charity number is SC047300.
Our charitable purpose is essentially to make our part of Glasgow, our members, and the community we’re a part of, a healthier and supportive place to be fit and active through running, and we hope to develop that purpose into the future (see below)
Background, and future
In 2015, at the suggestion of Scottish Athletics, the committee of the club began a process of reviewing its constitution and legal status, to ensure it was suitable.
Following this, members agreed at the 2016 AGM to apply for, and transition to, a SCIO Charity. In April 2017 we received our charitable SCIO status, and in June 2017 the club began operating under this constitution. This puts the club in strong position and helps protect its members, and the board, as we develop the club.
At our 2018 AGM, members adopted a strategy for the club, part of which looks to expand on what we do, impact and offer to the local community in which we’re based. We’re looking forward to developing this further in the coming years.
We are required to make a number of documents, and filings, available. These are available below.
- June 2021: A resolution was unanimously passed at our 2021 AGM to allow for virtual meetings, and a new section (123.4) inserted to clarify this.
