A Welsh charity has announced it has closed. Joshua's Wish, formerly known as Joshua's Foundation, provides holidays and trips for terminally-ill children.
The charity announced on its Twitter feed last night that it had decided to close down.
A statement from the Charity Commission confirms that trustees of Joshua's Wish have decided to wind up the charity and that insolvency practitioners have been appointed.
The trustees did not need to seek prior permission from the Commission before deciding to wind up, and nor are we involved in the process of winding a charity up. It is the insolvency practitioner that must deal with the charity’s assets; if any assets remain after the payment of debts and liabilities they must be applied for the charitable purposes appropriately.
We are acutely aware that some of the charity’s supporters are concerned about the charity winding up and we understand their complaint and disappointment. We are advising that they contact the appointed insolvency practitioners, Burton Sweet based in Bristol, who will deal with their concerns.
