Covid 19 has hit all fundraising hard this year, and we are especially grateful for all the donations we receive. We have received donations from local companies including Glasdon and Beaverbrooks who support Tiggers regularly. Our members and their families have also been especially generous during 2020 when we have struggled to provide our services due to the Covid 19 safety restrictions.
Blackpool Accommodation (A Home from Holmes) very kindly held a raffle on their Facebook page which raised £450 for Blackpool Tiggers. Thanks to everyone who donated a prize or bought a ticket!
Grants were also awarded from Sport England and from Kentown Wizard, specifically to help Tiggers during the lockdowns and throughout the Covid 19 restrictions period. Without these grants Blackpool Tiggers would have been struggling to survive to the end of the year, and we are extremely grateful for their help.
JPC Decor made a very generous donation of £550 towards the cost of upgrading the heating system in the trampoline centre. A warm environment is very important for our families and it has made our sessions a lot more comfortable at this time of year!
Tiggers has been awarded a substantial grant by the Three Guineas Trust towards our summer holiday programme of events. We are immensely grateful to the trustees for this funding which will enables our families to participate in specifically tailored social events and days out, geared to the needs of our members, which we would struggle to achieve otherwise.
Blackpool Tiggers has been awarded a "Magic Little Grant" from Localgiving, in partnership with Postcode Community Trust, a grant giving charity funded entirely by players of People's Postcode Lottery. The grant is for £500 towards the cost of utilities in the Tiggers' trampolining centre. This really is magic as it will keep the lights and the heating on this winter!
Sally, Katy and Susan completed an 18 mile walk, starting and ending in Keswick over the 3 peaks of Catbells, Waller Cragg and Latrigg. They were sponsored through Tiggers' Justgiving page and beat their target easily, raising a grand total of £544!
