Helping hand grant

Dear Wadhurst.

We are proud that our helping hand grant has always given us an opportunity to give some surplus money to local community projects. Unfortunately as you are obviously aware we haven’t been able to raise any funds since the summer fair in June 2019, and sadly as you know the Fireworks in 2019 were cancelled due to weather and all other events for 2020 are now cancelled due to the covid pandemic.

We have taken the decision as trustees of the Wadhurst Warriors not to offer any donations until the end of our financial year March 2022 and at our AGM we will review the helping hands grant then. We need to see if we can start to put on events and develop funds in 2021 to build up surplus money to donate and support local charities in the future.

We will be putting all our efforts in the Christmas decorations this year, we want to make the village come to life during this festive period and hopefully put a smile on people’s faces where we can celebrate and hopefully put the year 2020 behind us.

We hope the community can come together and look forward to a better 2021 with some great ideas we already have working in the background to make our community a great place to live. Please take care and stay safe during this time.

Wadhurst Warriors.
