Following on from being incorporated - thanks to the fantastic team at Appleby Isle of Man for their legal support - we've had confirmation that our request for charitable status has been confirmed by the General Registry in the Isle of Man.
This means we're now officially a charity - number 1100 - and the bank account is opened with the Isle of Man Bank. Talking of money, we've secured sponsors for a few of the events during Litfest weekend (don't forget - September 27-30 - put those dates in your diary) and we'll start announcing event sponsors soon.
There are still opportunities for companies, organisations and individuals to support an event - they vary in cost, but we've purposely kept the packages as competitive as possible; plenty of good deals still available. If anyone is interested, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
Or, if you know someone who you think might be interested in supporting Manx Litfest,.feel free to pass on our details. We won't hold it against you...
Till next time, happy reading.
