Charity accounting

I am about to take over the book keeping for a local charity. I have also been approached to become treasury for the schools PTA, which is currently registering as a charity.

Could anyone recommend a book which would explain the differences with charity accounting and help with an insight to the various regulations that need to be followed. I would like to get some background knowledge prior to undertaking either of these roles

Many thanks
