Adams: The money will go a long way
Sarah Adams of Suicide Prevention and Intervention IOW says:
“All of us at SPIIOW are hugely grateful to the National Lottery Covid-19 Fund for their support during this difficult time, like most Island charities we have faced a number of uphill struggles with funding this year due to Covid-19 and our fundraising has been hit very hard.
“This funding will enable us to equip the awaiting team members with their PPE, keep our vehicle running for the next six months with the help of fuel costs, equipment for our frontline team and to install a record management system that better serves are trustees and support volunteers.”
