God Unlimited Outdoor therapy has been successful in its application for funding from The Blagrave Trust.
Gul had been visited by the trust who, having been impressed by the work the charity does across several fields decided to grant funds of £10,000 towards its ongoing development. The trustees at the charity wish to express their thanks to the team at Blagrave for their support and will use the funds to further improve the support offered to young people in Wiltshire.
As part of a bid to raise the profile of the charity Gul, in partnership with The Blagrave Trust and The Big Give will be using the funds as part of the Big Give Christmas Challenge, a match funding campaign aimed at doubling the value of the the grant. To help Gul achieve its fundraising target please support the campaign which will be running between 12pm on Tuesday 29th November and 12pm on Friday 2nd December 2016. to donate to the charity and help our Campaign please use the this link.
Thank you to all the residents who turned up to the area board meeting, I know some of you were there for the traffic updates but it was nice to give a presentation to a full room.
