When you’re celebrating your 25th birthday, you’ve just given away a record amount of cash and in the process the total you’ve pumped into Stevenage over the years has topped the £1 million mark, a certain amount of celebration is in order.
Support from event sponsors and enthusiastic bidding for auction lots and raffle prizes meant that the 25th anniversary event raised an altogether appropriate total of £25,000.
Chair of trustees Robert Stewart said: “I was delighted that so many of our supporters could join us to celebrate this landmark in the Trust’s history.
In 25 years we have given out £1 million in grants – a terrific achievement that we could not have realised without the generosity of our supporters.
I’m looking forward to another 25 years of the Trust helping Stevenage people and organisations.”
