Annual Report and Financial Statements

  • The Annual Report outlines the structure of the Richard III Society and summarises its activities and achievements over the period of the reporting year; it also outlines future plans and objectives. The Financial Statement provides the Treasurer's report and audited accounts for the reporting year, which runs from 1 April to 31 March.
  • The Annual Report and Financial Statements are published together with the September edition of the Ricardian Bulletin.

2017 - 2018 Foreword

Dr Phil StoneI again take pleasure in introducing an annual report, this time for the year 2017/2018, demonstrating as it does that we are in good shape and continuing to make progress. However, challenges remain – we need to always be on our guard to ensure that Richard III is treated fairly in the media and we need to be proactive in retaining and recruiting members.
We have maintained our public profile, attending the Middleham, Tewkesbury and Bosworth festivals. We’ve launched some new research initiatives and produced an excellent basic guide for those wishing to undertake their own research. It is also very pleasing to see that the Richard III & Yorkist History Trust published their 13th publication; over the years the Trust has brought the Society much credit, demonstrating our commitment to good quality historical scholarship.
This report provides a useful source of information about the Society and its achievements, at the same time reflecting the dedication and hard work of the many members who voluntarily give their services at all levels of the Society. I remain grateful for their commitment and enthusiasm and thank everyone involved with the running of the Society. We remain a financially sound and confident organisation and we will continue to work tirelessly to further the rehabilitation of Richard III’s reputation.

Phil Stone — Chairman
