Grant would provide even more crucial services to disabled people in Ipswich
Winning a £12,500 solar panel grant would enable even more services to be offered to disabled people in the Ipswich area.
That is the rallying cry from disability charity Papworth Trust who are appealing for the public to vote for them as the M&S Energy Fund enters the final week.
The charity has put forward their Foundation Street centre in Ipswich for a grant which would see solar panels fitted on the roof of their building – continuing the charity’s environmental drive and giving big savings on electricity and heating costs.
The direct result of winning the grant would mean the money saved would be redirected to providing additional and crucial services providing social interaction and confidence-building.
Jo Revitt, corporate partnership fundraiser at the charity, said: “It is not often a charity is asking for something – but not money.
“But we are asking the public to consider voting for our Foundation Street to win a grant that would make such a difference to the lives of the disabled people we support in Ipswich.
“There are some amazing things going on in Foundation Street – from a fantastic gardening project to woodwork classes and cooking.
“This all help provide the people we support with life skills, social interaction and confidence-building. And with the public’s help, we can do even more.”
The deadline for voting is Monday 10th October with votes cast via https://www.mandsenergyfund.com/projects/papworth-trust-solar-panel-fund.
