We were delighted in June 2014 to be awarded a grant of £2000 from the Foyle Foundation in support of our running costs in the year 2014 to 2015.

Funding from the Dorset Community Foundation supported the project for the first two years after opening our unit in Nightingale Court, and the charity is gradually working towards its aim of eventually becoming self-sufficient, or at least less reliant on grant aid.

It has increased its membership, recruited more volunteers to help with scooter maintenance and administration, and added to the fleet of machines it can hire out as well as offering low-charge maintenance services to members with their own equipment.

Of course we still welcome offers of help in fundraising, scooter maintenance and unit and administrative assistance, as well as donations of scooters, wheelchairs and mobility aids.

But the grant from the Foyle Foundation will help meet the reducing demand for grant funding for core costs in the coming year.
