Holy Trinity Blacon gets funding


Holy Trinity Church, Norris Road, Blacon has run a Community Outreach Project since autumn 2013.  It has grown a great deal since its first beginnings, now running across four days (Monday to Thursday) every week.  It includes Meeting Place café, craft courses, knit and natter group, scrabble group, music workshop, Playtots parent and toddler group, and a gardening club.  Over 80 people attend weekly, aged from 0 to 99 years.  About 22 volunteers assist in many different ways with this most popular project, which is run by two Community Outreach Workers, Sue Mountford and Ed Green. 

Jane Harris, The Morgan Foundation Administrator handed over a presentation cheque, saying “The Morgan Foundation is pleased to support this worthwhile local project which is improving community cohesion and providing opportunities for upskilling.”

The Morgan Foundation was created in 2001 by Steve Morgan CBE with the purpose of supporting charities across North Wales, Merseyside, West Cheshire and North Shropshire. Since 2001 it has committed over £35m of funding.  Help is focussed mainly on those who work directly with children and families, but it is interested in all projects that enhance the quality of life for people in the region, particularly those suffering from disability or disadvantage.
