After a difficult and lengthy application process to the DM Thomas Foundation for Young People, we have just been notified that we have been awarded a cheque for £10,000. This does not come with any strings attached or as a pledge or promise when we reach a certain amount, this is a direct donation to the WISHH Charity which as usual, is ring fenced exclusively for the RetCam appeal.
As a team, we think this is a fantastic boost as not only does it significantly increase our total, but just as importantly, this is the first national organisation that has recognised us in this way and our bid was up against professional, national charities. It proves that our local campaign must rank with the best and is considered nationally to be worthy of support.
We cannot thank the DM Thomas Foundation for Young People Charitable Trust enough for supporting us in this way.
