Aged 11 to 18? We are recruiting new members now!
We began in 2016. It seems a long time ago now. If you have a clear recollection of 2016 you will remember that it was a year very much affected by government austerity policies and some quite severe cut backs in public service provision.
It wasn't a good time to be looking for financial sponsorship or backing.
We put our group together and the Cambridgeshire Community Foundation came to our immediate assistance.
We received a grant of £1600, and with that grant we were able to purchase key pieces of technology and infrastructure that got our team off the ground - this included broadband access, a computer for the group, cameras for our social media channels, and associated camera equipment.
Most clubs, societies and small businesses close within a year of opening. It is a real achievement to make it to the one year point. Without the support that we received from the Cambridgeshire Community Foundation, that would have been us too.
The Cambridgeshire Community Foundation are dedicated to improving the quality of life for people across Cambridgeshire. Why not visit their website:
Romsey Mill are a long standing and incredibly well respected charity in Cambridgeshire. They launched in 1980 and have been serving the community for 40 years.
Romsey Mill are a Christian charity and they provide help and support to young people and families across a spectrum of initiatives which includes pre-school, youth development and young parents support. The Aspire Programme gives help and friendship to young people Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASCs) - and they provide weekly youth clubs to create a comfortable and accepting space.
We look up to the work that Romsey Mill do, and we recognise the way that they have supported our County and our Communities through the difficult years of Austerity, while many statutory providers have had to shrink through declining budgets.
We needed a registered charity to partner with to plan and deliver stage 2 of the Chromebooks for Covid Isolated Students project - and Romsey Mill stepped up to support us without hesitation. We couldn't a better partner to work with on deliver of this important issue.
We encourage you to visit the Romsey Mill website to learn about all the positive work they do - how you might volunteer to help them - or indeed how they might be able to help you directly.
