Among the most obscure names to appear on the Charity Commission's register must be this month's entry Blobbyshelp, which sounds as if it should be about weight loss but is in fact a cancer charity.

We also say hello to French Bulldog Saviours: although it conjures up the unlikely image of a team of grumpy-looking animals running to the rescue of afflicted people around the world, it is actually about promoting humane behaviour towards these perennially peeved pooches.

A warm welcome also to Luna Animal Rescue, which is not about saving Clangers (and yes, we know that really should be "lunar", but give us some poetic licence). It is, rather, a charity set up by Louise Jest and Natalie Howe to care for domestic animals.

Meanwhile, it's time to say farewell to Dragon Active, which was removed for being inactive, and the marvellously named Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes GLR South Durham Province Benevolent Fund, which has stampeded off elsewhere.

Time is also up for Action Unlimited, which must have found that there was, after all, a limit to what it could do.
