In December 2018 we submitted our YES I CAN! application to The Big Ideas Fund (sponsored by the national stationer Office Outlet), detailing the good work we do, in the hope we would win the £5,000 grant for our charity.


On the 15th of February 2019 we were over the moon to receive an e-mail from the marketing agency that was acting for The Big Ideas Fund telling us we'd won and that the presentation of the £5,000 cheque was to be made on the 14th of March!!

Sadly we were brought back down to earth with a bump when the presentation was unexpectedly cancelled at the last minute and we were informed that Office Outlet were about to go into Administration.


Indeed they did on the 19th of March and of course we lost our £5,000 grant because-of.  The marketing agency were very supportive and professional throughout and were of course as sad as we were, not only for our charity but for those who lost their jobs with Office Outlet . . . . . . .

But we're not down-hearted . . . . we're very positive!
