The cancellation of both our summer exhibition and Christmas fair has had a significant impact on DACA’s financial position.
Typically, 90% of our annual income comes from the summer exhibition in the form of door receipts, stallholder fees, exhibition entry fees, sales commission and plant & book sales. All of the profit made from the Christmas fair goes into out Grant Fund. Although we will not be incurring the majority of costs associated with the running of these events, the latest projection for the end of year accounts shows a significant operational loss. Fortunately, DACA is in a relatively strong financial position and has reserves in place which can be used to deal with short term setbacks. However, until the financial position becomes clearer, we have taken the decision to suspend the awarding of grants.
Should you wish to support DACA financially, we would be delighted to accept a donation, no matter how small.
