Invaluable work from these charities
Sue Wilkinson, our trustee and chair of the grants panel, said: “These very local charities do invaluable work – providing people with opportunities in life where, and when, it is needed the most – from helping tackle loneliness and dementia, to supporting disadvantaged children and young people in many different communities across the country.
