ELMBRIDGE CAN'S REFUGEE SUPPORT FUND GETS A BOOST FROM CROWDFUNDER GRANT
15 March 2017
Elmbridge CAN has received £2,500 in match funding through Crowdfunder’s Just Act Community Fund.
The Just Act grants provide extra funding for people and projects that want to make a difference in their local area. It’s about communities working together.
Crowdfunder Spokesperson, Will Wagstaffe, said:
“We’re proud to support volunteer-led community projects that will change lives for the better.”
We’ll use the money to support the needs of refugees and asylum-seekers in Elmbridge and the surrounding area, through our new Refugee Support Fund.
Elmbridge CAN’s Co-Chair, Vicki Felgate, said:
“We’re delighted to have been given this grant from Crowdfunder. It will make a huge difference to the lives of refugees living in the local area. But we couldn’t have done it without our supporters – you provided the first £2,500 that enabled us to apply for match funding. Thank you. We think you’re amazing.”
