Local Fundraising has exceeded our expectations with money being raised by many different organisations and individuals. The Supporters Group have also organised fund-raising initiatives and all have been well supported by the village.
Hilary’s quizzes have been a notable fund-raiser – both the regular monthly quiz and some well-attended quiz evenings. The monthly quizzes (on sale in Barford Village Shop or from Hilary) bringing in about £100 every month and the quiz evenings each raising over £600.
The Scout Hut Cafe has made several donations, bringing their total so far to over £4,000, and the pupils of Barford Primary School completed a sponsored walk that raised over £900.
Lots of other – small & large – donations – all valuable
The total of local fundraising now stands at more than £50,000
We applied for several grants to help fund the storage unit and raised £10,000
We have made Grant Applications and will be making more, to larger fund sources. The Barford Community Charity in particular has pledged to provide £30,000 when needed. We have a list of Charities which support Community buildings and will be making Applications over the next few months.
