When the Covid -19 crisis hit, the National Lottery set up a number of funds to help those hardest hit.  

One of these funds has been administered by the Heritage Fund - organisations that have received grants from them in the past were encouraged to apply for the emergency funds to ensure their projects could progress when lock-down eased.

We will have a number of extra expenses and some additional precautions once we are able to get back to full work, and so we made an application.

We are delighted to be able to report that, thanks to UK Lottery Players, we have been awarded a grant.

This will:

  •  help towards some additional equipment to minimise the need to share, and
  •  cover the costs of necessary Personal Protection Equipment to ensure our volunteers are safe

Once we have made the purchases we will add some photos to show the equipment.

Some of the PPE has arrived - wipes, safety goggles/masks
