|Polwarth Parish Church shortlisted for funding
For almost a year now, Polwarth Parish Church has been working in partnership with People Know How towards our shared dream of acquiring a canal boat on the Union Canal and using it as a shared community space for the benefit of our community. I’m sure you will understand why we are so excited about this new venture.
We have been working hard to raise funds to make our dream a reality, and I am thrilled to report that we have taken a big step towards making that dream a reality – but we really need your help!
People Know How have been shortlisted by Ecclesiastical Insurance to receive a grant of £50,000 as part of the 2019 MOVEMENT FOR GOOD Awards.
This grant would help our partnership to acquire a canal boat and recruit a member of staff to develop our project on a full-time basis, cementing our partnership and extending the reach of our work. Since People Know How have led on this particular application, they have used the name of their Positive Transitions Service (the umbrella service that All Aboard fits into) for the purposes of the application.
We are one of 15 projects to have been selected from hundreds of applications, and over the next 2 weeks, our friends, colleagues, and partners will have the opportunity to show their support by visiting the Movement for Good website and voting for us – https://www.ecclesiastical.com/movement-for-good/50k-shortlist/people-know-how/
