Ramsey Neighbourhoods Trust Receives over £250,000 towards Community Projects
Ramsey Neighbourhoods Trust Press Release - 17th June 2019
Ramsey Neighbourhoods Trust is delighted to announce they have been successful in receiving a grant from The National Lottery Community Fund for just over £250,000 to be spent over the next five years. The funding will enable four of its community led projects to continue into the future. The intertwined projects address issues of rural and social isolation and include Phoenix Training Courses, The Dog’s Meet Community Café, Job Search and Ramsey Timebank. We believe that together these four elements will provide a cohesive support package for our community.
Alison Seery, Ramsey Neighbourhoods Trust Project Manager, said, “We’re very excited about this news. It means we can not only continue to offer these services, but we also have the funds to let them develop and grow. We are very grateful to all those who play National Lottery games, as without you this would not be possible. These projects really do make a difference to people’s lives - Thank-you!”
Ramsey Mayor, Steve Corney, said, “This award is well deserved for the hard work Ramsey Neighbourhoods Trust is doing in the community, all of which is very much appreciated by myself and the rest of the council.”
Appropriately the grant was announced on Thursday 13th June at a community get together held by Ramsey Timebank, at Down2Earth Community Barn in Ramsey Forty Foot. All those attending were thrilled to learn the news.
