We currently have 4 bids that we are awaiting the outcome. Lottery, Essex Community Foundation, Sainsbury and Tesco. We could not have achieved this if it were not for the guidance and support of VAEF. They guided us through the procedures allowing us to move forward with our vision. they encouraged when we felt downhearted with bids that did not come to fruition. The team at VAEF were always positive and one did not feel inadequate with some of the questions that we asked having not prepared bids before. This team do an invaluable service to those of us that enter into this field of trying to raise money for much needed causes.
Just wanted to say thank you for making us aware of the training available. I attended and it was great!
