Thank You Again Again

We can not say thank you enough to everyone who has given and is giving their time, skills, cash and love towards making the dream of this beautiful, multi-purpose space a reality. We don't want to name people individually, as some wish to remain anonymous. But you know who you are and you know this would not be happening without you!

The Inlight Trust

One group we can name is The Inlight Trust. They first gave us a grant of £7,500 in about 2008 when the idea of a Four Seasons Studio-like space began to take shape. In 2019, they gave us £10,000 and then a further £25,000 specifically for the Four Seasons Studio project. This funding in particular made the project viable. Having the support and encouragement of this respected trust means a lot to us.

Allchurches Trust

Another organisation we can name is Allchurches Trust. They recently gave us a grant of £5,250 for the Four Seasons Studio project.  Thank you so much!

Rank Foundation Pebble Grants

Another organisation we can name is Rank Foundation Pebble Grants. They recently gave us a grant of £1,500 for the Four Seasons Studio project.  Thank you so much!

Low Carbon Dorset as part of the European Regional Development Fund

And a BIG thank you to Low Carbon Dorset as part of the European Regional Development Fund for a grant of almost £14,000. This funding enabled us to install photovoltaic panels, mechanical ventilation with heat recovery and an air source heat pump. As a result, we will be saving a huge 14.9 tonnes of CO2 from Dorset air each year. Thank you so much!
