Worth Society – Widening our Horizons
Worth Society Ltd was established on the 1st September 2008 in order to take over the day-to-day running of the Society’s activities from the Worthians Charitable Trust.
In response to feedback from our members, we found ourselves significantly extending the breadth of the Society’s activities to include business and social networking; the availability of an extended range of merchandise; the support of Worthians participating in events to raise money for good causes – to mention just a few.
These are all activities that fall outside the charitable objects of the Worthians Charitable Trust – and it is for this reason that a not-for-profit limited company was established, which is called Worth Society.
A significant percentage of profits made by Worth Society are ploughed back into the Worthians Charitable Trust each year, which continues to operate through its trustees and makes charitable grants – including the Global Action Awards and the School Bursaries Fund. As our funds grow, we hope to make a real difference to past, current and future pupils, to Worth and to the wider community.
Since 2008 all day-to-day running costs of Worth Society have been met by the not-for-profit limited company and annual membership subscriptions paid to Worth Society. Separate charitable donations to the Worthians Charitable Trust continue to be very gratefully received.
As with all limited companies, the directors hold annual general meetings which take place in September. We wholeheartedly encourage you to attend these meetings and would welcome your involvement in the running of the Society – even if it is just by attending our AGM and sharing your views with us.
We hope to be able to meet some of our members at future AGMs – and please don’t hesitate to share your views with us by contacting Mary Lou Burge at firstname.lastname@example.org
