Week Four of the WW1 Aftermath Programme
Great turnout as usual and the participants are so enthusiastic about this course that they have requested extra workshops! The sessions are so informative and the facilitator encourages everyone to participate fully sharing their own stories and experiences. The build-up from the weekly sessions has everyone excited for the best practice visit to Co Cavan where they will meet with similar projects and visit the museum.

A massive well done to the Woodburn and Sunnylands Womens Forum for the clean-up they organised in the Woodburn area on Saturday the 16th February. Around 30 kids and adults from the local area gave a helping hand to tidy up the area. A big thank you to the local Dominos and McDonald’s for their kind donations of pizza and burgers for the kids. The group is going from strength to strength with the support and encouragement of the Carrickfergus Community Forum SPOD project. Well done to all involved.

Week three of the Sign Language course which has been thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. Well done to all those taking part.

One of the largest grant-making trusts in the UK.  Don’t fund work that is just based in Scotland, Wales or NI, but will consider applications from organisations based in one of the countries if the work is of UK-wide significance, is so exemplary or pioneering that it will be of special interest and relevance elsewhere in the UK; or the work covers more than one UK country.
