Andrew has welcomed the latest round of funding successes which were secured via the help of the Bid Writing Service he set up for local good causes and charities.
Andrew reports, "I am delighted to report that the 'Bid Writing Service' I offer from my office to support local good causes and charities, has once again been able to secure thousands of pounds of support for local good causes.
"We have now raised well over £1 million for local good causes through this service which helps support local groups with putting together all of the paperwork required for funding bids and then writing those bids.
"Below are just some of the ones we have secured funding for in Crowle and Ealand in the past few weeks. Well done to all the volunteers involved in these projects and thank you of course to the SSE Wind Farm Funds for supporting them. We are happy to play a small role in helping with the funding bids."
