Charitable Incorporated Organisation

On Wednesday 15th January Chrysalis was awarded Charitable Incorporated Organisation status and our registration number changes from 1116321 to 1187351

Earlier this week, Dawn made a series of phone calls to people who had connected with us at Bourne Free, where Julie and others in the Chrysalis team

It’s election week! Like almost everyone else in the country, or at least those on my Facebook, I think I’m looking forward to Friday 13th. A day when, just perhaps, we can look forward to some stability, to some vision and to some clarity with regards to the management of our country.
