Exits and Entrances: No laughing matter at Giggles

Interestingly-titled charities joining the Charity Commission's register also include Brainfartz and the Adrenaline Youth Society

Amid the doom and gloom, perhaps some of this month's new charities are hoping to inject a bit of levity into the Charity Commission's register. Struggling to keep a straight face is the poverty relief charity Giggles, which, despite its name, promises to take its work seriously. Perhaps it was amused by Brainfartz, the name of a new youth brain injury charity.

Also pumped and primed to help young people is the recreation charity Adrenaline Youth Society. By comparison, the historical education charity Ice Age Insights might be expecting a much cooler reception.

Leaving the register, all in a neat row, were the Ducklings of Detling Pre-school, a community group for pre-school-age children and their parents. The Woodhall Wizards Children's Centre realised the magic was gone and vanished in a puff of smoke. Fit 4 Nothing, an amateur sport charity promoting fitness, decided it really was, and Zoom In refocused and zoomed off.

And we hope that the arts and social inclusion charity Story Door remembered to close itself on its way out.
