Katie’s Trust helps make a splash

posted in: News

We met a wee boy today with a #DIPG who isn’t able to get out and about.  We have been in contact with his mum & dad for a while, and have just hired a ‘birthing pool’ to allow him some relaxation and fun whenever he is able.  We are pleased we have been able to help the family in a small way.  Thanks to everyone who has contributed – this is truly Katie’s Trust in action.

Funding update

posted in: Fundraising, News

It’s been a weekend of good news on the funding front.  First of all we managed to get final total of £2,694 for Tap Heavy, which will rise to nearly £6,000 with Santander matched funds and Gift Aid!  A fantastic effort by all the dancers – our thanks again.  And then we opened the mail last night to discover that HMRC had finally paid out on all the Gift Aid accrued since 2010 – cheques worth £4,850! 

Really good news on the heels of our successful AGM this week, and helps keep the Trust in a strong financial position.
