Reviewed the functionality in the current site:

https://sites.google.com/site/hlsbetasite/

The home page contains a fusiontables backed map and cards based on data from the charity commission: https://sites.google.com/site/hlsbetasite/

The categories page shows how a directory structure might be created in Google sites (categories based on charity commission terms):  https://sites.google.com/site/hlsbetasite/categories

The Google Custom search shows a Google Custom search widget can be embedded in Google sites: https://sites.google.com/site/hlsbetasite/google-custom-search would be nice if we could work out how to make the search default to include harrow by default

The Google Map page shows an embedded view of Google maps searched for “Harrow Charities” https://sites.google.com/site/hlsbetasite/google-custom-search/google-map

The Search by Activity page contains a fusiontables backed map and cards with search functionality added via JavaScript: https://sites.google.com/site/hlsbetasite/search-by-activity
