Boost Fund Grants are awarded monthly by a group of the volunteers in each Shared Space charity shop. At the Christmas party the volunteers decided on a bumper round of Boost Fund Grants to benefit some very local and very good causes.
The volunteers picked:
- ‘Move a Mountain for Marcus Fund: to help a Southend boy with cerebral palsy to walk
- Belle Vue Baptist Church Homeless Nightshelter: to help them buy emergency clothing
- Southend Christian Fellowship: to help them buy a lift for disabled people
Move a Mountain for Marcus
Marcus is aged 9 from Southend on Sea in Essex and he was born with cerebral palsy at 32 weeks. Because of his condition Marcus cannot walk or stand unaided. The money will go towards a 2 year programme of physiotherapy for Marcus. The Shared Space volunteers are delighted to help. You can support Marcus yourself at his Just Giving pageOther news...
