It appears that New Charter own the premises of the furniture shop. And that is the limit of New Charter involvement in the donation. Regular readers of this blog will not be so sure of that!
Check here for another report. Note that one Hyde resident is featured in a case study, but Tammy Williams is not just a Hyde resident. she is a director of New Charter Homes. As was Tom Daly and his wife Ann .(They ceased as such on 1st October last year.) Though they are still Trustees for the Second Generation Furnishings charity. The whole Tameside deal is reportedly worth £18 million.
So let us just sum up the situation. Tammy Williams is "airbrushed" out of New Charter's own report...odd. There is more New Charter involvement in the charity than is admitted in the two articles on the web. (Second Generation's first registered office was the New Charter HQ at Cavendish house.). and finally, just what is meant by :-
“This solar panel project is the first we have done in the UK and is an extremely significant deal for GES. The deal basically involves using roof space for solar panels under a licence agreement with New Charter. This allows New Charter to retain control over the roof and their tenants benefit from reduced bills through the energy produced by the panels on their homes.”
Who actually owns the panels???
