Lashes Foundation celebrates its first anniversary !
On the 7th January 2023 the Lashes Foundation celebrate it’s first anniversary since we received our official charity status
The support we have received has been incredible from day one ! Thank you !
We cannot thank you all enough for everyone that has helped us; Volunteers, fund raisers, people who have donated, major donors, ambassadors, trustees, people who support our events, people who buy a raffle ticket or just support and believe in what we are trying to . We appreciate your continued support which will allow us to continue supporting the local community however we can with random acts of kindness to cheer people up in the local community who deserved recognition and help
In our first year, the foundation received 134 grant requests and approved 119 grants totalling over £62,000 !
To name but a few; we have supported women fleeing domestic abuse, families dealing with terminal illness and helped improve life for local disabled children and adults. We’ve donated to local food banks and provided mental health support for urgent cases and helped children who have suffered bullying, helping give back some of their confidence. We’ve installed defibrillators and supported local youth sports teams and youth organisations who play a vital role in our children’s development and mental health.
We are also so proud to have opened Lashes HQ, our pre loved shop in Forest Town. This helps give opportunities to support local disadvantaged young adults with learning experiences in a retail environment, provide local people with high quality pre loved goods to help them in what is a challenging time for lots of people and provide a sustainable source of income to be able to continue to help other in the local community.
Plus we won an award of the best local charity at the Mansfield and Ashfield 2020 business awards !
We are also thankful for our 9,000 Facebook followers, with over 1.3 million views !
Thank you to all of our Major Donors: You are brilliant…
