Raystede claims to be at the forefront of best practice when it comes to governance and yet they have been operating in contravention of the charity’s governing documents for nearly twenty years – ie since they opened the cafe.
When the charity was set up more than fifty years ago their governing documents stated:
Articles of Association, Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare
1.1 The objects of the charity are
(1) To prevent and relieve cruelty to animals and to protect them from unnecessary suffering and to promote and encourage a knowledge and love of animals and of their proper care and treatment.
When we pointed out to them that they were acting in contravention of Article 1 by serving animal products in the cafe they ignored us. They ignored us for years until they could take it no more – then they changed their articles of association!!!!!!
