We are happy to announce that Oarsome Chance has been awarded a grant by Postcode Community Trust for £20,000 from players of the People's Postcode Lottery towards our boat building and bicycle recycling projects!
The Postcode Community Trust funding will provide vital support to our life-changing services and will be used to help us deliver a special programme of activities where students will make their own wooden paddles in our Maritime workshop in Gosport or a recycled bike in our workshop in Havant.
Our Chair of Trustees, Paul O'Grady said “We were delighted to hear the news that The Postcode Community Trust has chosen Oarsome Chance as one of the recipients of an award. These funds will be vital in helping us to deliver our workshop programmes to the young people we work with – players of the People’s Postcode Lottery are helping us to make a big difference in their lives, as well as to their families and the communities where they live,”
Our local MP, Caroline Dineage has been in touch to congratulate us on the news too, “These projects really will help improve the well-being and prospects of disadvantaged young people from the area. Many congratulations on being awarded this grant funding!”
