Keeping our projects going requires a lot of people, time - and of course money.
We wouldn’t be able to do all we do without having a small team of paid staff and our projects always need funding for equipment, training and events. As a growing organisation we also needs funds to meet the running costs of our office and community building.
Our management team has been very successful in bidding for funds, allowing us to carry out projects that have made a real impact. We also generate our own income by letting out our community building and selling training and consultancy services to other organisations.
However, with increased pressure on public spending it has become more difficult to find money for local projects and this situation is not likely to improve soon.
That’s why we are asking you if you would join us as a Friend of Woodlands Community.
You can become a friend from as little as £1 per month. We’ve set a range of payment option as different people can afford different amounts, but all friends get the same benefits. And if your circumstances change you can cancel your subscription at any time by signing into your account.
By becoming a Friend, you’ll be helping us to continue our current projects and develop new initiatives to improve life in Woodlands.
You will be able to attend social events where you can meet other supporters who have an active interest in the community. You’ll get the latest news on what Woodlands Community is doing.
From 2020 people who have joined as Friends and who live in Woodlands will also be able to vote at our AGM and have a say in setting our priorities.
Most importantly, you’ll be making a real contribution to your community.
