Help Dorset youth charity The Alcohol Education Trust move from a garden garage to a sustainable café and community space on The Great Field

by Helena Conibear in Dorchester, England, United Kingdom

Thank you from the AET - we made it thanks to you!

We have been amazed and humbled by how wonderfully generous you have been in supporting our crowd funding campaign to 'raise the roof' on PiP's café and community space. We were very nervous, having never run such a campaign before, but over 100 of you on and off line have ensured that we have raised £22,000 - 10% more than our 'dream target', thank you so much! 

We are also deeply thankful to Dorset County Council and their youth fund, who matched your donations with £10,000 - we wouldn't have been eligible for this grant without your support.

If you are happy, we will keep you updated on our progress over the coming months.

Thanks and best wishes from 

Helena Conibear CEO and The Board of Trustees
