Community Development Updates

7 Nov 2019

It has been a really busy quarter during July and September 2019 with 14 team challenges supporting some very isolated groups who benefited immensely from business support.

We are now moving into our final quarter and will be in high demand for festive challenges and getting business support for Collect 4 Christmas 2019 supporting vulnerable people affected by homelessness.

If you are a community group who could benefit from a team challenge please contact us for more information.
