International charity held fundraiser in ACT without licence

Access Canberra will take no action against an international charity after it held a fundraiser in the capital without a valid licence.

Sunrise Cambodia apologised for the fault, saying an “administrative oversight” had been the cause.

An online search of Access Canberra’s records showed The Australia Cambodia Foundation Incorporated, trading as Sunrise Cambodia, held a Charitable Collection Licence (ACT) from 21 June 2011 to 20 June 2016.

This licence had been allowed to lapse before being renewed again on February 13.

But the charity did not hold a valid licence for at the time of a $125 per head black tie dinner at The Abbey Function Centre, Nicholls on February 4.
