Independent Examiner's Report to the Trustees

I report on the accounts of Winchester Hospitals Radio for the year ended 31st December 2005, which are set out on pages 10 - 13.

Respective responsibilities of trustees and examiner

The charity's trustees consider that an audit is not required for this year (under section 43(2) of the Charities Act 1993 (the Act)) and that an independent examination is required.

It is my responsibility to:

Basis of independent examiner's statement

My examination was carried out in accordance with the General Directions given by the Charity Commissioners. An examination includes a review of the accounting records kept by the charity and a comparison of the accounts presented with those records. It also includes consideration of any unusual items or disclosures in the accounts, and the seeking of explanations from you as trustees concerning any such matters. The procedures undertaken do not provide all the evidence that would be required in an audit and, consequently, I do not express an audit opinion on the view given by the accounts.

Independent examiner's statement

In connection with my examination, no matter has come to my attention:

  1. which gives me reasonable cause to believe that, in any material respect, the trustees have not met with the requirements to ensure that:
    • proper accounting records are kept (in accordance with section 41 of the Act; and
    • accounts are prepared which agree with the accounting records and comply with the accounting requirements of the Act; or
  2. to which, in my opinion, attention should be drawn in order to enable a proper understanding of the accounts to be reached.
