Funders Event 30-01-2017

Thanks to the tremendous support of 6 funders we were able to hold a Funders Event on Monday 30th January 2017. The 6 funders (in alphabetical order) were :-

Cultural Spring Emma Horsman
Gentoo Group Jackie Pitt
Greggs Foundation Justine Massingham
Heritage Lottery Jodi Larder
Sir James Knott Mrs V R Stapley, Trust Secretary
Sunderland City Council Nicol Trueman

This event was specifically aimed at hard to reach BME organisations and people within the Sunderland area who would normally feel socially excluded. We hope that by providing this extra support via Sunderland BME network (SBMEN) working in collaboration with the funders that many more people from the BME communities in Sunderland will feel confident enough to go forward with funding applications.
