Save Busy Buttons
We need your help, unfortunately RBWM has decided to reject our application for full business rate relief while our Charity Registration was in progress and we are now facing a rates bill for £89K. The Council is well aware we do not have anything like this in our reserves and that to pursue this would be to force us to close down.
Our mission is, and always has been, to support and help young people in the community and by pursuing this avenue the Council is threatening our very existence, which would mean abandoning the children and families that we support.
We feel this is not an option and are now calling on the local community to speak up and help save Busy Buttons.
