BIG NEWS: North Lanarkshire Titans CIC

We’ve got BIG news! We are delighted to announce North Lanarkshire Titans is now officially a Community Interest Company.

Community Interest Companies

North Lanarkshire Titans is a Community Interest Companies (CIC), I think it’s helpful for our members and local community to understand what that means. Below is a brief explanation and information.

A community interest company is a type of social enterprise introduced by the UK government in 2005 under the Companies Act 2004, designed for social enterprises that want to use their profits and assets for the public good. CICs have the flexibility and certainty of the company form, but with some special features to ensure they are working for the benefit of the community.

Being a social enterprise means that North Lanarkshire Titans works, as a charity does, for a greater good rather than simply making profits which is the aim of most private sector companies. As a social enterprise, North Lanarkshire Titans is part of what is known as the third sector along with charities, community groups and voluntary organisations. There are many social enterprises around and thousands of smaller organisations.

Any organisation can be a social enterprise there is no registration required or any special rules, which is why North Lanarkshire Titans has now decided to register as a community interest company. This means that we are a social enterprise but we can offer our users, the general public, the security and peace of mind knowing that we are a properly structured, registered and transparent company.

What is the difference between the North Lanarkshire Titans CIC and private sector companies?

Being a Community Interest Company means that we have registered with Companies House as all private sector companies do. However, there are two key differences between North Lanarkshire Titans, as a community interest company, and other private sector companies.

  • The first is that we have a social aim. Instead of putting all our focus into making profits for directors or share-holders, we work to fulfil our social aims working for families and children. Any profits we make are put back into North Lanarkshire Titans to further our work. No-one walks away with profits from North Lanarkshire Titans.
  • The second difference is that, should North Lanarkshire Titans ever have to close down, any assets that still exist in the company have to be given to another similar organisation a charity or another community interest company with similar aims. This is called our asset lock and it ensures that no individual or private sector company can make off with our assets.

We really appreciate all the help and support our users and local community give to us.

North Lanarkshire Titans CIC is on the Register of Companies held by Companies House. Through their Web check service, you can find out all our details on there.

If you would like more information about community interest companies, please visit their website.

Easter Holiday Timetable

Due to school closures over the Easter holidays, we are running several camps to provide basketball over the break, free of charge. The below timetable will replace our normal weekly timetable for Easter weeks ONLY.

On Tuesday 12th April, we will be hosting our first Open Day to welcome everyone along in a fun setting, you can bring along a friend to shoot some hoops, play 1v1 with your coach plus meet & greet our Senior Men players.

On the evening, we will have several stalls set out where you can learn about our Club sponsors and partners, purchase merchandise via @hoopfreakz and lots more.

Have you done your spring clean yet? We will have one stall dedicated to taking donations for the Wear, Care and Share initiative ran for Cash For Kids. More information to follow.

To book a place, please visit – https://nl-titans.class4kids.co.uk/camps

Every academic year, we notice a trend where numbers fall away over school holidays, some are lucky enough to be away on holiday or enjoying some down time to visit family. We really notice the drop off in the Easter holidays (SPRING BREAK!!!). Due to losing many of our lets as the schools fully close, we have condensed our timetable and provided free camps to keep the club and most importantly, our players active and in somewhat a routine throughout the break.
We hope to see many of you along to the camps and to the Open Day on 12th April where we will have lots of fun activities and stalls.

Robyn Tierney, Club Administrator

Sponsor Announcement

NL Titans x Official Team Sponsor

North Lanarkshire Titans are delighted to announce a new season-long sponsorship with local Greek food takeaway and dessert parlour, Plato2Go and Loukoumagic.

Our Official Team Sponsor will be proudly promoted on our Senior Men Division 1 shooting shirts for the entirety of Season 2021/22.

Owner of both businesses, George Tsamasfyris, who admittedly loves the game of basketball saw great potential in collaborating with North Lanarkshire Titans Basketball Club.

“I’m very pleased and overwhelmed with the opportunity to be sponsoring such a great team. It’s great to go along on this journey of success. This year will be a great year for the Titans,” said George. “As I am Greek, I can guarantee, that we will fight in the league like the Greek Titans and we will bring the best result possible.”

Club Administrator Robyn Tierney said, “This sponsorship deal will have a great impact on our Senior Men team, as the cost of the running a team rises every year from cost of games and specifically the forever-rising cost of hall hire” said Robyn. “We are delighted to have both Plato2Go and Loukoumagic as Official Team Sponsor. We thank George and the team for having trust in us and joining us on our journey to our first full Division 1 season.”
