The Sandwich Society is back on the menu

Plus: charity names with no spaces or a surfeit of punctuation

One of the less confusingly-named charities added to the register this month
One of the less confusingly-named charities added to the register this month

First this month is a newly registered testicular cancer charity using the slogan "Be a lad 'n' check your nads". Its name? BaggyTrousersUK. Yup, one of those trendy names with no spaces in it, to which Exits says: "Be a star 'n' find the spacebar."

No space for confusion on what another new charity – the Glamorgan Artistic Roller Skating Club – is involved in. But questions are posed by the name of the newly registered Scottish children's charity What? Why? Children in Hospital – surely the only charity with two question marks in its name.

It's also welcome back to The Sandwich Society, reinstated to the register two weeks after the Charity Commission removed it, thinking it had ceased to exist. Now there's a charity Exits can really get on (sandwich) board with ... except, ah, it turns out it means the town in Kent, not the luncheon staple. Shame.

Finally, we bid farewell to In the Pink, a Welsh breast cancer charity that, unlike the Sandwich specialists, has ceased to exist and has exited the register – perhaps it was in the red and expected this to happen, or perhaps the move came out of the blue.
