How C4C's donors have made a difference:

Feathery Folk received a business grant in 2015. .......used the money to renew some vital equipment that was crucial including travel boxes for the birds, and to purchase a couple of new birds, a long eared owl and common buzzard who have proven to be valuable new members of the team. The business has grown brilliantly thank you and we are now booked for every weekend until August on a wide variety of bookings including wedding, photography days and family fun events.


Jude Theatre Company received a youth grant in 2016: on behalf of our participants, Carter House, ourselves at Jude Theatre CIC and the Congleton community we wanted to thank you for your generous donation last year to fund 7 sessions of life-skills drama. The summer programme for older people with learning difficulties was a fantastic success. 25 Participants with varying levels of disability and learning difficulty regularly participated in regular applied theatre provisions with us focussing on the development of life skills. Your generous donation was used as allocated towards marketing and tasters, staffing costs, project management, space hire, supporting our groups and resources. This project would have been impossible without the support of Congleton 4 Congleton, thank you so much. 


Beartown Amateur Boxing Club received a sport grant in 2016:

he grant was used to improve both competition equipment as well as our club equipment so we could achieve two main objectives.
