Funding a Force for Good
Mary’s needs your help to be a Force for Good in the Community
Recent changes to local government funding means that running a small community organisation like Mary’s involves constantly looking for additional resources and partners. At Mary’s we have an absolute commitment to the young people of our local community and we’ve been excited to see so many involved in recent projects – but we need your help to continue this work.
We’ve successfully raised some of what we need for the year ahead, but still have ground to make up. Below you can see some of the partners and supporters who’ve already funded the vital work we do.
Everybody who contributes towards the work of Mary’s, whether through offering financial support, expertise, networking or volunteering, makes a significant difference to the lives of the people of our community. Every individual who participates with us can lay a real claim to being a Friend of Mary’s, in actions as well as words. Every group who comes alongside us can share in saying ‘This is our work’.
We hope that you would like to partner with our supporters either through donations, fundraising or offering your skills to help us reach our target. In the article below we’re really proud to be able to introduce you to Ian Mylam, who is both a Trustee of Mary’s and a foot-slogging fund-raiser. If he should inspire you to raise funds for Mary’s through your own event, please let us know. We’re also using this issue to introduce one of the Community Groups we host in Mary’s Rooms – Step Forward. Their work in empowering young people and giving them the first taste of professional life runs parallel to the work of Mary’s Youth Club, the subject of our final short article.
Thank you for all your support so far.
