In the past few months, thanks to SAVS (www.savs-southend.org) and their unstinting help and support, Craftable has come a long way. We have a new home, regular members, and a lot of interest from potential new members.
Today Jen met with a few organisations who offer financial support and funding to local community groups and charities, and Craftable now has its first funding bid in place. Obviously, with so many worthwhile causes running in Southend and the surrounding area, there is competition for the available funding, so the next few weeks will be a little bit nerve-wracking while we await the results. There will be another “Meet the Funder” event towards the end of March so fingers crossed!
