Funding Update

Recently we posted that we had reached our Phase 1 funding target of £9,000 for the Workshop area build.  We would like to reiterate our thanks to all our funders and grant sources for making this possible.  We are continuing to progress with the Lease details and look forward to the actual build starting.

Soon after reaching this milestone then on 25th July were awarded the maximum grant of £4,000 from the Tesco Bags of Help Scheme and the ceremonial cheque was ceremonially presented by Tesco to the Shed last Saturday.

That’s definitely bags of help

This award together with some other cash built up has allowed us to start counting our progress on the Phase 2 funding drive 🙂  and you will see in the right margin* an updated progress thermometer.  To date we are at £6,000 out of a target of £57,000.

Please keep coming back here to see how we are progressing and also see our Fundraising page.  There are ways to help such as the Amazon Smile scheme which won’t cost you anything, also we have a number of items for sale which might include something you’re looking for, at fairly painless prices 😉 – see here.

If you are not already a Shed member and are considering becoming one, we can guarantee you good comradeship, great craic and the opportunity to contribute in whatever way using your skills, knowledge, suggestions, or just to lend your encouragement and support to a worthy cause.  Men’s sheds are growing rapidly across Scotland for good reason.  See you soon!
