Tony Hatfield in his Retired Ramblings has done some digging and uncovered some fascinating information about the "Find Madeleine" fund (The Official Website to find Madeleine McCann). Although the website gives a companyname "Madeleine's Fund :leaving No Stone Unturned Limited, Registration number (6248215 ) a search against that number at Companies House returns
Name & Registered Office:
MADELEINE'S FUND: LEAVING NO STONE UNTURNED LIMITED
2/6 CANNON STREET
Company No. 06248215
It appears the Fund is a Company Limited by Guarantee and that an application for charitable status has been refused. The Company objectives are listed at length on Tony's site.
The website stated that the current balance of the fund at mid day 25th May 2007 was £313,091.17. which doesn't include money taken over the counters of NatWest Bank & Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), along with the donations made by cheque, which have not yet hit the account and that the site had received over 125 Million hits.
The company running the website are Infohost which appears to be run by Calum and Cameron McRae and is Ullapool based (?) . They list 40 odd clients but their website returns "Still in development " for New Projects and News tabs.
Clicking a banner on the Home Page of Infohost for Find Madeleine with the URL www.bringmadeleinehome.com re-directs you to the Find Madeleine website.
