National Lottery Community Fund grant

Brockworth Link is delighted to announce that a grant has been received from the National Lottery Community Fund.

This grant will enable us to ascertain the needs and wishes of the community for future activities, events and facilities available.

We are extremely grateful for this grant as it will enable us to acquire information that would have been difficult to afford through our normal funding channels.
