We had some fantastic news in the last week and from Carling who are supporting `Made Local` and we have been lucky enough to be awarded a fund to get us mobile. The #madelocalfund will enable us to get out into the community and deliver workshops and events in new areas and help bring more people together through textiles.
Semble who are working with Carling on the Made Local Fund have been absolutely brilliant in this and since the award have guided us through the next processes and will be coming to join us in workshops to celebrate the award!
We simply cant thanks both Carling and Semble enough for this award as it will really make a massive difference to what we are all about. It creates more opportunities for those in the community; it will help bring volunteers in and increase hours for staff. Our TeX project will also be able to make pickups and deliveries of the waste textiles that would normally be sent to landfill as now we can use this in more and more workshops.
We are in the stages of planning our celebration event with Carling Team that will be held in January in a pub somewhere local and we will update as soon as we know so you may have the chance of coming along and joining in.
