The COVID pandemic has placed an enormous strain on all aspects of our society, particularly charities such as ours. Thankfully, TRIP received a generous grant of £10,000 from the National Lottery Community Fund to assist with our community response and keep TRIP going.
This amazing funding has enabled TRIP to continue offering our shopping service, volunteer medical cars, restart the Ring & Ride service as well as keeping our befriending service going. We have undertaken over 500 transport requests a month as well as 200 other support requests. This funding has directly helped cover our staff and office costs, ensuring that TRIP can keep its doors open to our community with our regular hours.
