Hope for the future – The Woodland Project wins grant from The Peoples Projects!
The Woodland Project in East Sussex offers days out in the woodlands for children and young people with physical and learning disabilities, their families and siblings.
The project was one of five projects in the Meridian East region shortlisted by The Peoples Projects to be in the running to win a grant of up to £50,000 and it was announced on Thursday 6th April that The Woodland Project had been successful in winning the funds!
Marina Robb, Director of Circle of Life Rediscovery said “We are overjoyed to have been successful in winning this future-changing grant of £49,934, and we would like to thank everyone who voted for us and believed in the value of the work we are doing here, to help support these young people and families.
Our aim at Circle of Life Rediscovery is to help families to get outside; to get them involved and learning new skills in the woodlands. And with this incredible opportunity The Peoples Projects has given us, we want to invite others to become involved and continue to support The Woodland Project. The project is funded solely through donations and external funding so even with this amazing grant we have received, the need for support doesn’t stop. You could show your support by volunteering, fundraising or giving a donation – any support is welcomed and would help us to create a sustainable future for The Woodland Project.”
The Peoples Projects is a partnership between the National Lottery, Big Lottery Fund and ITV. To read more about Circle of Life Rediscovery, The Woodland Project, or to find out how you can support go their website or email [email protected].
