We were delighted to have been awarded a grant of £57,892 from the Masonic Charitable Foundation to continue running supported gardening sessions at our dementia-friendly allotment. The grant will enable us to support lots more older people, including those living with dementia and their carers, providing opportunities to get out in the fresh air, meet people and make new friends, whilst enjoying nature and growing our own fruit, veg and flowers. A huge thank you to the Masonic Charitable Foundation for their wonderful support!
We’ve also been awarded a wonderful 3-year grant from the Rayne Foundation – a substantial £20,000/year towards our core costs! This funding will make a huge difference, enabling us to continue to deliver our services and support for older people and their carers. Again, a massive thank you to the Rayne Foundation for their ongoing support.
We’re also extremely grateful to the Quartet Community Foundation, St Monica Trust, The Grateful Society, The Anchor Society, and the John James Bristol Foundation for their incredible support of our BME Elders Health and Wellbeing project. We’ve been awarded a total of £48,911 to continue to support older people from BME communities in Bristol – who attend the Malcolm X, Golden Agers, and Evergreens elders groups. Thank you very much!
