Suffolk Police & Crime Commissioner visits The Porch Project
He spent time with the Youth Work Team hearing about the work they are doing and the facilities the Porch offers the young people of Hadleigh, Great Cornard and surrounding areas.
Tim is a great supporter of the Porch Project and we have benefited from two grant awards from his Suffolk Police & Crime Commissioners Fund. He has previously visited one of our drop-in sessions in Hadleigh and we are looking forward to welcoming him to a Cornard session later this year.
We are extreemly grateful to Nordson Dage for supporting the Project with a grant for £2,400 to get our Horizons Programme up and running.
On August 8th & 9th the Porch Project were fortunate enough to be able to take seven young people to France on a two-day WW1 Battlefield Tour. This was made available to us by Mark Brennan and the Hadleigh Great War Centenary Project, www.hadleighww1.com . What a wonderful opportunity for local young people to witness first-hand the great sacrifice and bravery of their local forefathers.
On July 28th the Porch Project were very pleased to welcome Tim Passmore, the Suffolk Police and Crime Commissioner our temporary offices in Corks Lane.
Thank you to everyone who came along to our Summer Celebration & AGM and to the Lindsey Rose for providing the delicious food.
We are very grateful for the continuing support from the local community.
