We are absolutely delighted to announce that we have been awarded a £150,000 grant from the Garfield Weston anniversary fund!
The money is for essential renovation works to our flagship building, Maundy Grange. Work will include a ground floor kitchen and dining space, a meeting room and multi use room and refurbished offices/counseling rooms, as well as central heating! So our guests can be toasty and warm all year round!
The work will transform the way we offer services; especially over lunch time. It will be a joy to cook in a new ground floor kitchen – no more carrying lunch downstairs. Counselling rooms will be re-configured with new lighting, heating and decoration.
We look forward to the works starting and will keep you posted
Special thanks go to Mike and Lucy who completed the bid

See if you can spot any famous faces!!
