We’re so proud of the work that we do. Because of you, our endowment at Quartet means we’re able to award a thousand grants every year. We have the privilege of making a difference to thousands of people in our local communities, changing lives today, tomorrow and forever. Here are some of the stories of lives we have touched through our work with donors to inspire philanthropy and on the front-line addressing social needs.
“My family have been living in this area since 1973 so I’ve been coming here since the early 70s when the estate was built. I would like it to look how it did when I was a youngster, it wasn’t so overgrown and the kids used to play in the trees and on the green spaces, have picnics and everything. I want them to have a safe space, a clean space, to enjoy."
“Jacobs Wells is a pocket of deprivation which falls within the BS8 postcode - a very affluent area in Bristol, so there were no community projects happening” say JumpStart Fitness. The children have now benefited from fun fitness sessions thanks to a grant through Quartet Community Foundation.
Last summer we awarded Bristol After Stroke £7,000 through the Medlock Fund for Older People to redesign their volunteer service. The charity relies heavily on its volunteers to run its front-line services including the popular drop-in Stroke Cafés which benefit so many people, including Ron.
“Not every parent can afford to provide breakfast or all three meals for their children. It is the times we are living in at the moment" said a single parent who's children benefit from the breakfast club at Evergreen Primary in Easton.
