Financial Plan

We are delighted to have secured an interest-free loan from a European Foundation which has enabled us to begin the building works in February 2010 for completion in the autumn. We have to repay the loan over the years but the sooner it is repaid the sooner the foundation can support other charities with this money and the sooner we shall be able to use funds raised in the future for other activities.
