Feedback

Wildgoose Rural Training Image

“I cannot fault the response from yourselves, the reactivity of wanting to help organisations in such a quick turnaround has meant the world to us, and arguably we wouldn’t have been able to open and kept everyone safe as much as we have without your help. Not only have you enabled us to respond to the pandemic so quickly, but you have been key in restoring normality to our students in such a short period of time.”

“Thank you ever so much for your email and the generous donation of the grant. We are very grateful and so pleased to receive this, it is our first grant, which will be put to good use as soon as possible to support people with mental ill-health in Worcester.”

“Thank you for the wonderful news of the £2,500 Covid-19 Response Award.
The grant will go a long way to help us to continue to support anyone with breast cancer in Worcestershire by delivering our support services remotely for the next three months of self-isolation and social distancing.”

“We have nothing but praise for WCF. You are the first ones that believed in us, and you were the initial push we needed to succeed. We will never forget what you’ve done for us, and we really hope this is not the end of our journey.”
