Ingrave Scout Group
Thank you very much for the grant
you have made towards the modernization of our Scout
hut. The extension is almost complete and we are now
raising money to update the original hall to add insulation
to the walls and roof.
Thank you again for your support.
The funding enabled us to successfully run the
Build it- Race it-Go Kart Project. The project
promoted the positive side of education by enabling
young people to learn about mechanical engineering
in a fun, relaxed way, with Maths and English
skilfully being embedded into the sessions.

to update you about our work over the past year

Children's Action Group
I would like
to confirm that we have used the grant towards specialist
tricycles for two children living in Barking and Dagenham.
One child is 3 years old and has a movement disorder
affecting her whole body and the other is almost 8 years
old and has Cerebral Palsy which affects his whole body.
The www.hcag.org.uktrikes we have provided will
give them the independence and mobility they lack.
Line Meals Service (London)
Thank you once
again for the generous grant awarded in December 2015
towards the costs of providing training for disadvantaged
young people and nutritious daily meals for
children and elderly.
These meals prepared,
cooked, packed and delivered by our faithful volunteers
made an enormous difference to the lives of the
elderly, the disadvantaged and the deprived children
who received them. Instead of going to bed hungry,
or subsisting on unhealthy fast food, the children
and the elderly were able to enjoy a nutritious
well balanced meal which improved their physical
and emotional health. As well as the obvious physical
benefits, they felt nurtured and better cared
for, despite their difficult circumstances.
|| We would like to thank
you for this generous donation we received in November
2016 which has allowed us to continue to support
the most vulnerable young people in our Hackney
community. If you have any questions about the report,
please don't hesitate to contact me.

Your generous grant of £1,000 towards our Developing

65% noticed an improvement in confidence since their
child has accessed services at The Limes.

has only been possible with your help and I would like
to say how much your willingness to fund us is appreciated.
