Exits & Entrances: Wales Deaf Rugby Union rejoins the register, and new charity advances Christianty through 'madness and mayhem'

Plus: The UK Students for the Exploration & Development of Space joins the register, while the Magic Circle Benevolent Fund and two charities that have nothing to do with octopuses leave

Welcome back to the register of charities the Wales Deaf Rugby Union. It originally registered in 1998, was removed in 2010 on the grounds of being inactive, but has since been restored. It hopes to host a world championship next year.

Hello also the Madness and Mayhem Trust. Its objects are to advance the Christian religion – in a mad, and mayhemful way, presumably.

A third new charity is the student group UK Students for the Exploration & Development of Space. "Become a member today and you could be working on a rocketry project tomorrow!" its website says, optimistically.

Meanwhile, in an odd coincidence, both the grant-giver the Yellow Octopus Foundation and the Welsh community charity The Octopus Project were removed from the register recently. They appear to have nothing to do with each other - or octopuses, for that matter.

Finally, the Magic Circle Benevolent Fund is going. It assisted former Magic Circle members and their families, but it's not clear if it was the "magic circle" of the five top law firms, or the actually magic Magic Circle.
