All money raised through entry donations, hire of equipment, grants and sponsorship is used to keep the organisation afloat. It's not just the costs of the supplies and services we use eg; stocks for kitchen, security, insurance, community buses. We need a meeting place and somewhere to keep equipment. Some equipment needs to be professionally serviced, some may have ongoing rental costs.
Wear and tear necessitates replacement of other items, ‘use by’ dates on supplies are observed and supplies are replaced as they expire. On the rare occasions there is some extra money, we may invest in more sound/kitchen/safety equipment/volunteer training, decorations, vehicle repairs or modifications etc but generally we just about tick over each year while making occasional donations to worthy causes.
