Our impact


Our main source of income is from our organized events and community gatherings, and from donations we have received from individuals, businesses and organisations.


This can be measured by the hundreds of people who have attended fundraising events. We have evidence of positive feedback including responses on social media, articles and letters in the local press, and coverage on radio and TV programmes.
