Houston, the charity page has landed…

“Houston, the Eagle has landed”.

The immortal words of Neil Armstrong as Apollo 11 touched down.

On the moon.  The moon?!

It still amazes me.

(**Ah, Houston, we have a clunking segue**)

But if charity landings seems as unfamiliar to you as the moon must have seemed to Mr Armstrong, here’s a useful beginners guide.

For more really helpful info, do have a look at the Charity Digital News website, where there’s some excellent free resources to make use of.

“One small step for charities; one giant leap for charity websites….”

(I know, I know, I’ll stop now.)



Charity Resources: A Trilogy of… Lots?

‘I may not have gone where I intended to go,
but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.’

‘I love deadlines.
I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.’


I am a fan of Douglas Adams.

He was a great author, writer, humorist, and all round good egg.

So in honour, of Douglas Adams famous Trilogy in Five Parts, I’m starting my own trilogy, on Charity Resources.

And whilst it might  not be as funny as Hitchhikers, it does share a certain ambiguous numeracy. In that I’ve no idea how many there will be. 42 might be appropriate?

But, following Douglas Adam’s lead, I’m going to start at the beginning. And hope that this won’t be regarded as a bad move.

My first Charity Resource page is on charity law.

I hope this series will be helpful.

But as the great man once said:

“You live and learn.
At any rate, you live.”
