Today there is a national celebration going on with all of the charities who have benefitted from a National Lottery grant recently saying a huge thank you to the National Lottery itself, but also to all National Lottery players, and we've got a very good reason for joining in ...
Over the past few years we have been awarded several significant grants from the National Lottery Community Fund, but this time around we've got something very special to celebrate. Earlier this month we received a total of £42,500 in funds to use across a range of our key services from our drop-in café to our new workshops programme and our Casework Team.
In itself that would be something to get excited about, but it doesn't stop there. Over the next three years we'll be receiving another five of those grants to help ensure the sustainability of our services through to the end of 2026! There is still a long way to go to secure all of the funding required for that period but a massive total grant of £255,000 goes a long way along the right path and gives us the confidence to continue expanding our range of services and our capacity in the long term to more fully meet all of the needs of our guests.
So I'll say it again. Thank you National Lottery, and thank you to everyone who takes part because you make the wonderful possible.
