Arrivals and departures from the register of charities
Arrivals and departures from the register of charities

A cautious welcome to the Faust Ensemble, which has joined the Charity Commission's register with aims including the advancement of the arts through public concerts and recitals. But it's difficult not to wonder what sort of pact its trustees had to make to get through registration.

Also joining the register is Flatpack Projects – no, not a charity set up to alleviate suffering among people who have injured themselves while trying to assemble furniture bought from Ikea, but an organisation that runs a film festival in Birmingham.

And hello to a charity set up to inspire the public, but also registered as a company, meaning it has been entered on the register under the unfortunate name I Can and I Am Limited.

On the other side of the regulatory coin, we say farewell to the English Women's Golf Association Trust. We're assuming they had another charity of the same name, in case they got a hole in one. And although we say goodbye, the fat lady clearly would not have been singing when the charity Size Zero Opera was removed from the register.
