Golden Friendships

About Golden Friendships

This application details the rapid development and expansion of a local community charity created in 2017 with an ambition to provide bespoke facilities, events & opportunities for predominately elderly and disabled individuals who had little or no access to facilities in which they could enjoy and participate in musical, drama or performance entertainment within their community. The remarkable levels of support and contributions from local businesses, individuals and fundraising initiatives over 4 years resulted in the outright purchase and creation of a customized facility and exciting programme of events, that are enjoyed by over 1100 isolated and marginalized individuals weekly.
