We have received investment in the Trust totalling £738,809. Other contributions such as access to cheaper machinery, printing, drawings, free surveys, furniture are too numerous to mention as they are all the individual grants that clubs themselves have received. We estimate this to be in the region of £90,000.
We are extremely grateful for everyone's support and may we add that it is not just the money that makes the difference but the psychological boost that it gives to the every volunteer, knowing that someone believes in what you are doing.
You meet interesting people, it's a good feeling to give something back to the community you live in, its social, sometimes passionate, hard work, satisfying and it can be fun.
If you don't want to join a committee maybe we could ask you to put your name and telephone number on the Volunteer list. Offering two hours a week, a month or a year. Helping to pull up some weeds as you walk past, making sure that we don't get vandalised, offering to open up the hall. Offering a skill that you have for a couple of hours. Every little helps and relieves the burden on all of us. We look forward to seeing you.
Add your name and contact number to the volunteer list and tell us how you feel you could contribute. We would really appreciate your input.
