UKPIPS is delighted to announce that following its recent application to the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator, it was granted full charitable status for Scotland on 7th February, 2014 with the reference number SCO44636.
This means UKPIPS can now plan to move ahead in developing initiatives and plans that will be of benefit to Primary Antibody Deficiency patients in Scotland. Moreover, it enables UKPIPS to approach Scottish grant making charities and fund awarding Trusts in Scotland for funds for Scottish projects.
In addition, the award of charitable status for UKPIPS in Scotland, means we can now move ahead and firm up the tentative arrangements we already had in place to hold a weekend meeting for Scottish patients (probably June 2014) to largely replicate the patient meeting held in England in November 2013 which was such a success.
If you are a Primary Antibody Deficiency patient resident in Scotland and would like more details of this forthcoming weekend event, please contact John Macartney at UKPIPS by email as soon as possible and register you interest. John will need your name, full postal address and a dependable telephone number. All information will be held on the UKPIPS database which is not ‘harvested’ out to mail order companies and the like, but retained on our own password protected computer. You can contact John by emailing him at john.macartney[at]ukpips.org.uk alternatively please submit the details using our contact form.
