Our Funders Paganhill Community Group could not run without funds, and we rely heavily on grants and donations. We are incredibly grateful for all of these, down to the last penny! The grants from the community fund has allowed us to really kick off with the community workshop, some of the garden work and some literacy. Thanks to NationalLottery players, we’ve been awarded funding to host a creative and cultural event to celebrate the Jubilee The Grace Network have supported us in so many ways that we cannot say how much that has meant. Their guidance, support and mentoring has been invaluable to us and we are grateful to them. We are very grateful to the Gloucestershire Community Funders and High Sheriff of Gloucestershire for funding a young people and child project. The grant enabled us to run Taekwondo lessons with qualified teachers for two sessions a week – one for little Pumas, and one for young people in their teens. Stroud Town Council have been kind enough to provide us with a number of grants that have let us do so many projects, including our community garden, a bench for locals to sit at, and help during Covid. They’ve supported us in so many ways on top of funding! Stroud District Council has co-funded a paid position to support us, which has been a blessing. Without this, we would have relied heavily on our volunteers for the day-to-day running. We are very grateful! We are grateful to Gloucestershire County Council for co-funding our paid worker, and for numerous other grants they have given us. Barnwood have been an amazing supporter of our organisation in so many ways. We could not do this without their guidance, mentoring, and support. The support of the Long Table over the difficult Covid period cannot be overstated – they provided food, freezers and support during the most difficult of times. Our relationship goes from strength to strength with the start of a new cafe at the Octagon, with a paid Community Chef, Shannon. The new Mud Kitchen at the Octagon has been made possible by a grant from Localgiving and Postcode Local Trust, a grant-giving charity funded by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. We’re very grateful to them for making this possible. Renishaw has kindly provided us with funding to run a cafe on a Wednesday, alongside P3 and the Independence Trust. This helps our local people recover from Covid, and gain the support they need. The provision of computers for our locals has meant that our organisation can support people in their online needs. We are grateful for the support for the Community Garden.
