Tour de Forth takes our pun prize this month

Plus: Breast Friends Tayside and Viz-Kidz

Exits announces a special pun edition this month: we start by welcoming Tour de Forth, a newly registered Scottish charity that organises cycle races, yes, around the River Forth. Exits isn't saying it was set up solely as a (two-wheeled) vehicle for a fine pun - but we'd hardly complain if it was.

Also registering in Scotland is the cancer awareness charity Breast Friends Tayside - a good pun, but not a new one; there are already six charities using similar names south of the border.

This column tends to focus on either exits or entrances - but here are two cases of both, as we give the award for short-lived charity of 2015 to the Potters House Christian Church Clapham, which spent just four months on the commission's register before ceasing to exist. This also gives an excuse for another pun: what do you do when someone wins an award? You clap 'em! Like Clapham.

The runner-up in this category is Viz-Kidz - a children's charity that spent a whole year on the register before its dissolution in July - which Exits should make clear is not the German offshoot of Whizz-Kidz. Sadly.
