Moth in a China Shop and Maisie Moo Foundation join sector's ranks

Plus: Curlew Community Centre, time to Say no, Beyond Survival and Charmed are among the new charities and those disappearing

In the days of "it does exactly what it says on the tin", it's refreshing to see a raft of new charities whose names seem to give no clue to what they do.

The latest entrants to the Charity Commission's register to fit that bill include Moth in a China Shop, which turns out to be a health and sport charity, the drama charity Mega-Mouth, and the Maisie Moo Foundation, which supports the families and carers of children with life-threatening illnesses.

We also welcome the Curlew Community Centre, which is not a gathering place for wading birds but a charitable incorporated organisation for the residents of Sutton Bridge in Lincolnshire. Oddly, the commission did not heed the advice of Time to Say No and just said yes to registration.

This month the register has bade farewell to Beyond Survival, which presumably is what it says on the tin, the performing arts charity Charmed, which it would appear was not, and Education Towards a Future, which now has none. Community Resolve has also been lost and gone to meet the great charity commissioner in the sky.
