Weston Charity Award

The next round of the Weston Charity Award has been launched.

This is the third year the Weston Awards have been run, and for the third year they are expanding to help more charities. The Awards provide unrestricted core funding alongside free capacity building support, and are designed to benefit smaller charities. The Awards are run in partnership between the Garfield Weston Foundation and Pilotlight.

Closure of Home-Start Lichfield & District

It is with great sadness that the board of trustees, Home-Start Lichfield and District, decided to close the scheme at their meeting on the 10th November 2015.

Over the last year the board of trustees have worked diligently to access core funding without success.

They are now at a stage where their reserves have to be used to plan a safe and legal closure on 31st January 2016. This enables them to meet their legal responsibilities to their staff, volunteers and families.
