Fair Play Barnet are delighted to announce some recent success in our fundraising endeavours!
Throughout 2013, Andrew, our Fundraising Manager, had been writing fundraising applications to a number of grant making trusts and foundations to try and get funding to support our Play Clubs in the Community Project. One of the clubs that we were trying to support was the Bray Road club run by Mill Hill East Church. This club was handed over to the community foundation at the church last year, but FPB had promised, as part of the programme, to try and help to secure further funding.
One of the organisations that Andrew applied to was The John Laing Charitable Trust, an organisation which has roots in the London Borough of Barnet, and more specifically, Mill Hill. The application was submitted in June 2013 and we did not hear anything until a letter arrived on the 2nd of January this year.
They letter told us we had been granted £3,000 towards the club, which we are very grateful for. We will be arranging a cheque presentation at the club, so keep an eye on the Fundraisers Gallery for the photos!
