Exits and Entrances: A furry tail ends happily ever after

A sideways look at some of the charities that have recently left or joined the Charity Commission's register

Puns in charity names are of debatable value, but it's always good to see an organisation that's keen to give it a go. With that in mind, a big welcome to the Charity Commission's register goes to the animal charity A Furry Tail Ending Rescue, which also operates under the name Happily Ever After.

Meanwhile, the Hoppy Trust will be jumping up and down to have achieved charitable status, and Running Well hopes it will be, lest it attracts the commission's wrath.

Other new entrants include Autism Unseen, which will hope it is noticed by funders, and The Key is E - not a music charity, but an organisation set up to advance education in African communities.

We said goodbye this month to JLS - sadly not the boyband, but the religious charity Jewish Life in Southend - and to Career Velocity, which came to a halt.

Elsewhere, the Happy Hedgehogs Playgroup curled up into a ball and the No Limits Charitable Trust presumably found there were some. An honourable mention should go to the delightfully named recycling charity Chairs and Spares, which went to the great upholsterer in the sky.
