Local Fund raising has exceeded our expectations with money being raised by many different organisations and individuals. The Supporters Group have organised fund-raising initiatives and all have been well supported by the village.
The Breakfast with Santa was a successful event – despite an electrical problem which was quickly repaired to enable the second sitting to continue.
Hilary’s quizzes have been a notable fund-raiser – with the second evening recently producing £1000 and the paper quizzes bringing in over £100 every month.
In March 2017 we received our first sizeable grant: £3,000 from the “29th May 161 Charitable Trust”. In August we received a grant of £2,500 from the Norton Foundation, to be used for the storage of the Scout equipment.
The Scout Hut Cafe has made another sizeable donation, bringing their total so far to over £2,400
Lots of other – small & large – donations – all valuable
The total of local fundraising now stands at nearly £42,000
We have started making applications for Grants and have a pledge of £3000 with encouragement to apply for a further grant next year
We have been granted Charitable Status – Registered No. 1166022
