Felicity Buchan has celebrated the £546,031.00 that has been awarded to community projects in Kensington by the National Lottery Community Fund since March.
A variety of charities and organisations have benefitted from this funding - one such beneficiary provides a mental resilience course to veterans and their families. Their grant will support them to develop and deliver a commercial programme for corporate clients, which will enable them to generate an income and reduce their dependency on grant funding.
"It is heartening to see how many community groups have benefited from this National Lottery funding. These groups are inspirational in the support they provide to local people and their community through what have been some extremely challenging times."
