It’s raining money……

Well, its been an eventful week to say the least, following on from the success of the fashion show last week were we raised almost £1400, we met with the Parish Council on Wednesday who very kindly donated over £2300 to the fund and then today we have received a letter from Ribble Valley Borough Council confirming that we have been awarded £3000 towards the project.
This takes us to approx £55,000 in total towards phase 1 of the restoration, this is amazing  within 12 months and a huge thanks to all involved in anyway. Hopefully we should be able to make a start with the builders in the next few weeks. Onwards & upwards………..literally!

By | | No Comments

Another successful night …
Our Christmas Fayre was a night to remember…. the room was full too bursting…. We hopefully did Thornley proud …the prizes flew in on the last few days from the community and high standards / commitment continued in how all the prizes were presented….
The prizes all  looked a million dollars under the christmas tree…and I think people went home with many full christmas stockings, treats and hamper boxes of surprises.
The stall holders were very much part of our night offering stalls to wander around and enjoy …  We send a big thank you to all stall holders…..hopefully they were well fed and some were lucky and won bingo prizes…
We think 130 – 150 people attended … all seats taken…. there was a great atmosphere… it was a time for us all to relax and join in with family during the bingo…
Yet again we really had  great support for our fundraising event…  Thornley spirit was again present and we are please to say still growing…
We offered the bingo tickets free / included within the entrance ticket alongside a delicious hot supper. This was a gift  for all for the support we have had throughout the year.
And we still made  £1,300 profit  on the night …..;)
Uncle Richard and the bingo team got the night going and we thank them for their expertise… and i have never seen Thornley so quiet… eyes down and all that…
Ferraris were accommodating, tables appeared, and the room grew to meet our demands… it was great to see all the bar staff doing their bingo cards….
A big thank you for everyones support in helping us bring 2013 to a close with a great fundraising night…
So….
 With the lease contract soon to be signed….and with money in the bag… we can safety say that the Thornley School is soon to be looked after and renovated for us all too use and enjoy…

Charity Status achieved…..

Great news…. Our status as a registered charity has now been confirmed.

This will help us hugely in applying for grant funding, monies, donations and progressing with the lease arrangement.

We are therefore pleased to report we are in the latter stages of completing the Lease with the Parish Council.

We would like to acknowledging the kind ongoing offer of assistance with the Lease from Vincent the Solicitors to both the Parish Council and Thornley Community Space team.

We are already exploring options of available grants and monies for community projects such as ours. Only this week we were notified that one application, has been successfully accepted to progress to the next stage of being considered for what could be a substantial amount of funding…
