British Society for the History of Pharmacy, Rock Around the Hills and Theatre in Motion

Plus: the Curricilum (sic) Support Fund and the Magic Gardens Project disappear

Some historical figures and events attract far more than their fair share of commemorative effort, so it's good to see the voluntary sector attempting to restore a modicum of balance.

With this in mind, the Charity Commission was no doubt pleased to welcome onto its register the British Society for the History of Pharmacy, a sadly neglected subject, which must be a bitter pill to its trustees, and Rock Around the Hills, set up with the aim of advancing the public's education in the hitherto underappreciated history of pop music in the Worcestershire town of Malvern.

We should also say hello to the Isle of Wight road safety charity Isle Drive Safe, while anyone who struggles with travel sickness should probably avoid visiting the Theatre in Motion.

Among those leaving the commission's register this month is a charity that just possibly fell foul of an unfortunate naming accident - the educational charity the Curricilum (sic) Support Fund (For Norton in Hales School). The Magic Gardens Project has also disappeared, while Hold it Down has let it go.
