We want our grant giving to provide transformational change to the lives of those most in need and we are extremely proud of the charities with whom we partner to help us achieve this goal. These organisations have been carefully selected and possess the operational expertise and resources to better assess the need and tangible benefit of our grants. Our partnerships are intended to be long lasting and, as we add to these partnerships in the coming years, we expect to be able to reach out and help many more individuals and families in need.

Grants have been provided to the following Charity Partners in the last 6 months :

Team Rubicon UK

https://www.teamrubiconuk.org/

A big thank you came from Team Rubicon’s skilled team of volunteers who have been on the ground in Mozambique since Cyclone Idai hit in early March.  The team have been working tirelessly to co-ordinate and deliver aid to the hardest to reach areas and in some cases have even had to carry upwards of 20kg each whilst moving on foot across vast landscapes to reach those who are stranded.  Their efforts have been acknowledged as being “vital to the success of the current response” and we are so pleased to have been able to support them at this time.

Diverse Abilities

Our grant towards the new Beehive Day Centre at Poole has helped transform the support the charity is able to provide to people who have profound physical and learning disabilities.  They are now able to offer physiotherapy in peaceful therapy rooms and comfortable nursing care, amongst many other vital therapy and social experiences.  Caroline Kendall and Vicky Foot of EGF are pictured attending the recent opening.
