Funding from The National Lottery has supported our charity for the last five years, helping to build a community of loyal volunteers.  Grimm & Co would not be able to do what we do without our wonderful volunteers and we are so grateful.  The funds we received have helped us to provide a wide range of support, training experiences and qualifications to our volunteers, as well as developing community engagement and involvement.  We have also received extra funding to enable Grimm to continue working with our volunteers, families and young people through the pandemic.

As one volunteer stated, “The rewards of being a volunteer at Grimm & Co are tremendous and the results are almost instantaneous. All in all, Grimm really are changing lives one story at a time for all, young and old…”

Volunteer Coordinator Meg Harvey said “We’re thrilled to be taking part in The National Lottery Open Week this year. We’ve been fortunate to receive National Lottery funding, which has enabled us to support our volunteers and young people and continue our important work thoughout this past year.  This is our way of saying thank you to everyone who has bought a National Lottery ticket, helped us on our journey and made a vital contribution to supporting good causes. We’re excited to welcome you back soon!”

Ros Kerslake,

Chief Executive of The National Lottery Heritage Fund and Chair of the National Lottery Forum, said: “The National Lottery Open Week is a really exciting moment in the year for us, where an amazing variety of venues and projects across the UK give thanks to National Lottery players for the £30 million they raise each week for Good Causes. Now, more than ever, people are excited to rediscover their happy place, or find a new one close to home, and we’re proud that so many incredible spaces across the sport, arts, heritage and community sectors have signed up to offer their thanks.”
