A loan of £2000 from the Fredericks Foundation has enabled Will Writer and Estate Planner, Amanda Young, to successfully develop her business. Amanda was a mortgage adviser who lost her job in the banking crisis of 2006. She had already taken the initiative and spent two years passing the exams to be an accredited member of the Society of Will Writers. Amanda invested the Fredericks Loan in a website www.amandayoungwills.co.uk and marketing materials to promote her business.
We have invested in over 2,000 projects over the last twelve years. Here are a few examples.
Cosgarne Hall in St Austell houses and supports 70 vulnerable and socially excluded homeless people who have multiple and complex needs, encouraging them to work through issues that may have led them to the streets.
A new addition for 2016 was a giant building workshop for the community of Lostwithiel, supported by FEAST and the CCF.
Access Theatre is an inclusive group offering access to the performing arts for individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity - adults with learning disabilities and a range of physical and sensory impairments.
Pop Up Penzance received funding from FEAST and the CCF towards family workshops in the lead up to the Man Engine Day in Penzance on 5th August. Pop Up Penzance ran two drop-in ‘Tinners’ workshops in the Pop Up shop on Causewayhead in central Penzance.
