We would like to extend a very big thank you to The National Lottery following our recent award under their People and Communities funding programme. In total we received a grant of £56,939 which has been used for some very important refurbishment work and the installation of solar panels. The repairs to the roof will mean that we can weatherproof the building which has deteriorated over the years and has been causing damage internally. The solar panels will be a step towards helping reduce our energy bills whilst making a small contribution to citywide decarbonising strategies. Once again, we would like to extend our deep gratitude to the National Lottery for showing an interest in what we were aiming to do and investing in the long-term goals of the organisation.
