Tears of joy

KWHA run a range of activities in Filwood, Bristol including cooking classes. They recently benefited from a grant through the Henry Smith Charity.

Have you ever wondered what impact your support for local projects can have? Last week Rhianan Lowes from Knowle West Health Association arrived at work to see an email in her inbox from Quartet letting her know the outcome of an application for an important funding bid. Knowing that securing this funding would make all the difference she hesitated to open the email.

Rhianan told us:

“When I opened the email and saw ‘I am delighted to tell you’ I had a little cry! I have eventually read the whole email and it’s still processing. We are all working so hard and this is not extra or spare money – this funding is the difference between continuing or ceasing – so it’s HUGE!”
