"Grandad we love you..."

Hi to all our amazing supporters. I need to let you know that we are facing difficulties in raising funding due to the unprecedented challenges of the Global pandemic, meaning people have many new and unforseen priorities reducing their ability to support good causes. We are appreciative of the funding pledged so far, therefore in order to deliver on our Grandad Groups commitment, we have agreed to lower our target amount to a more achievable £2,000. However, we still expect to exceed this and we will use any additional funds to set up as many groups as the funding will stretch to support. We feel sure you will be sympathetic to the situation and continue to support this life changing project for our most deserving older people that have already given so much during their lives. Thank you.
