As a registered charity fundraising is a vital part of our work to ensure delivery of projects is maintained and so we can expand to meet local demands/needs as they evolve.
The Trust provides activities which benefit 67,000 children per year, working with 150 schools and providing in excess of 5000 hours of community work annually. We currently deliver under 4 main strands: participation, education, community cohesion and health. All of the projects within these areas are funded differently by both national and local funders.
