Financial Report 01.10.10 - 30.09.11
Cardiff & Caerphilly Branch has generated £3,856.74
for NCT.
This figure is made up of the ‘General Reserves’ surplus figure for
the year, £197.44, plus the total ‘UK Office Contribution’, £3659.30.
• Breastfeeding Counselling expenditure relates to expenditure
incurred by Boobiful Babies & the Breastfeeding Support Tutor Group
along with any other expense from the Breastfeeding Counselling
students. This expenditure has remained pretty much the same as
last years.
• Committee Costs appear massively down from last year. Last year
£845, this year £146. However, HO added a new line to the account
“Parent Support” which has incurred £874.24 worth of expenditure.
Although the majority of this spending has been achieved through
grants with the Caerphilly group etc, any committee costs for any
activity supporting parents generally has been put through the new
Parent Support line rather than Committee costs as it was last year.
• Fundraising Unfortunately this year the total of our fundraising has
decreased..... by £8.64!!! A fantastic effort - a total of £5028.57,
totally driven through the NNS’s. (see full treasurers report)
• Unfortunately the only other fundraiser this years ended in a deficit
(Jan 11 Clothes Swap -£158.72), & our other attempt at a Spring
Ball had to be cancelled due to lack of response.
• Newsletter profit is down this year at £307.18. Last year made
£1037. Revenue generated from advertising sales has continued to
increase (see full treasurers report).
• Postage costs remain as erratic as ever (see full treasurers report).
Volunteers are key to this success. Printing costs have seen a
dramatic increase over the last 3 years - almost doubling per issue.
Increase in colour advertising requests?
