CAPTION: Summer event from last year at the Plymouth Christian Centre

Transforming Plymouth Together receives over £9,000 in lottery funding for Feast of Fun

Posted: 14th June, 2019

Transforming Plymouth Together has been awarded £9,100 in ‘National Lottery Awards for All’ funding to support its work across Plymouth.

The charity which is a joint venture between Church Urban Fund and the Diocese of Exeter works in Plymouth with the support of all the churches in the city to help tackle poverty.

The Feast of Fun is a community initiative for families who find that during the summer holidays their budgets are stretched by the absence of school meals and the extra demands of child care.

The events are designed to be aspirational and bring the churches across Plymouth together in a common cause to provide free and healthy meals throughout the summer. But it’s not just about food, the Feast of Fun combines fun activities every day in a safe environment which engage and care for a wide range of local people.

Chris Forster, Transforming Plymouth Together’s Development Worker said: “This new funding from The National Lottery is great news for Plymouth as it will allow us to expand our work with families and make a real difference to many more people’s lives.”
