LCV is run entirely by volunteers, so our operating costs are small. However, we do need to meet the expenses of the group, including owning our minibus, maintaining and replacing our tools, recruiting new volunteers, and administration.
We charge our clients modest expenses for our work. They pay our travelling expenses and £5 per volunteer per day.
We carry out our own fundraising work. We have an annual ceilidh, and we raise money for specific projects when necessary.
The following information about LCV can be found in the LCV documents section of our site .
As a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation, we are required to file certain information with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR). You can go directly to our records, or simply search the OSCR site for charity number SC020384.
