I wonder if it was Pam Gurney who complained to Mrs O'Dowd's professional body - probably hoping that she would be disbarred for her report!

Great to see that the ICEAW didn't bow down to such silliness.

Madeleines Fund:  Leaving No Stone Unturned Limited

Abbreviated Financial Statements - For the year ended 31 March 2015

I quote..

The abbreviated accounts which have been prepared in accordance with the special provisions relating to companies subject to the samll companies regime within Part 15 of the Companies Act 2006, were approved and authorised for issue by the board and were signed on its behalf on 18 December 2015.

Michael Linnett

Opinion on financial statements

In our opinion the company is entitled to deliver abbreviated accounts prepared in accordance with section 444(3) of the Companies Act 2006, and the abbreviated accounts on pages 3 to 4 have been

properly prepared in accordance with the regulations made under that section.

Bernie Watson (Senior Statutory Auditor) for and on behalf of haysmacintyre

Or to be more precise..



1.  Accounting Policies

Basis of preparation of financial statements

The financial statements, from which these abbreviated accounts have been extracted, have been prepared under the historical cost convention and in accordance with the Financial Reporting Standard for Smaller Entities (effective April 2008).

Going concern

The financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis.

Cash flow

The financial statements do not include a Cash Flow Statement because the company, as a small reporting entity, is exempt from the requirement to prepare such a statement under the Financial Reporting Standard for Smaller Entities (effective April 2008).


Income comprises donations received by the company along with revenue recognised in respect of merchandise supplied, exclusive of VAT.

[Snipped from Companies House document]

A few unturned stones there I think.  Just like the FOI system, transparency within the confines of the law?

The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you've got it made" - Groucho Marx
