WEEKLY GOOD NEWS: 26th June
Hello again, we hope you are safe and well. We've been putting these Newsletters together since the start of the COVID-19 emergency and they are just a snapshot of what's been happening over that time. So many organisations, voluntary groups and individuals have shown their support, proving time after time what an amazing community we have in Fleetwood. As we hopefully move further out of lockdown, businesses reopen, activities resume, and life becomes a little more 'normal', we're delighted to share a few more good news stories ...
If you are an organisation that employs people from vulnerable or disadvantaged groups, and was founded and trading prior to 2019 you may be eligible to apply for the NatWest Social & Community Capital Coronavirus Response Fund. Follow the link for more info but don't delay, applications may close soon.
