Thanks to all our supporters!

Thanks to all our supporters!

Like many other charities, COVID-19 has bought some unique and pressing challenges to LGN. Changing the way we offer befriending, adapting to meet an increased need from our members, and working on our digital inclusion project have all been the focus of the last three months. We’d like to thank our funders who are helping us meet these new demands and continue with our project, including: National Lottery, Allen Lane Foundation, Groundwork, Kathleen Lawrence Trust, the Penny Appeal, Peter Kershaw Trust, OPeNS Fund, Tudor Trust, Albert Hunt and One Manchester.

We hope to share more good news in the coming weeks too!
