Thank You to Our Funders and Our Supporters
Our grant-making efforts and the generosity of the many people who
donated and helped with fundraising, enabled us to purchase and
refurbish our new Centre.
We are most
The City Bridge Trust which helped us make the building
accessible to people with different disabilities.
The Big Lottery Fund which helped with funding for refurbishment as well as
for a volunteer co-ordinator for the next five years.
u The Community Sustainable Energy Programme and Scottish Power Green
Energy Trust which helped fund our solar panels! We’re monitoring how much solar electricity we are producing
and how much CO2 – and money – we are saving.
want to thank all those who donated their time and expertise to help
with grant applications, planning applications and all kinds of
technical and other advice, as well as the talented artists and
performers who held benefits for us.
Above all, we
thank those soul mates and well wishers who made donations and standing
orders whether or not they could afford it. Our cup runneth over.
In order to keep some costs down while using eco-paint and natural oils,
we did the internal decoration ourselves – a team of enthusiastic volunteers spent
weekends and evenings sanding, painting, oiling, pointing, washing . . .
while others cooked and made cups of tea to keep everyone going. And we
looked for good deals on items like lights, tiles, kitchen appliances
and cupboards . . . Thank you all! We can now enjoy the
beautiful space we created together.
We have begun to pay back our £50,000 debt from the purchase of the building.
