This last four weeks has been a bit of a whirlwind.
At long last the Charity Shop income is nearing the ten thousand pounds per four week period that it was achieving before Covid-19.
The Men's Shed project continues to move on, a steering committee group has been formed and visits to two local sheds in Rayleigh and Springfield have been made. The best news is that the Foundation Trustees have a greed a match funding arrangement whereby for every pound raised by the shedders (that being what members of Men's Sheds are called) from whatever source Mister Gees Foundation will match pound for pound up to a total of twenty five thousand pounds. So, shedders raise twenty five thousand pounds, Mister Gees Foundation matches it giving a total of fifty thousand pounds.
A Just Giving page will be set up within the next few days so everybody can support this worthwhile project.
Also new on the site is the latest financial report.
