Making a Difference (Marketing) Limited

The law prevents charities from carrying out any non-charitable trading – this is because such trading could put the assets of the charity at risk.  We have therefore chosen to incorporate a subsidiary company which enables us to carry out non-charitable trading, something that helps us raise money for the charity without putting its assets at risk.

Making a Difference (Marketing) Limited is that trading subsidiary. It is wholly owned by the charity.


As a responsible company it is required to ensure that donations are properly made and that recipients of any donation comply with certain strict guidelines.
