Lord and Lady St Levan FundEllies Haven has been awarded a grant of £2,500 from the Lord and Lady St Levan fund to help the charity produce a professional business plan for potential donors so they better understand the charitys aims.
The charity has also achieved Level Two accreditation of the ˜Fitness for Funding scheme, which means that the charity has successfully adopted good business practices. The evaluation was undertaken by East Cornwall Council for Voluntary Services (ECCVS) who run the programme.
The Lord and Lady St Levan grant, which is managed by the Cornwall Community Foundation, will go to help develop and produce a fundraising business plan, explaining the charitys aims and objectives to a wider audience to be launched in early 2010.
The charity aims to raise £1.6million to build a non-medical holiday haven for children with life-threatening and long-term illnesses to be sited in South East Cornwall.
The grant is the first of its kind for Ellies Haven and we are very grateful to the fund and the Cornwall Community Foundation who manage it for their support, it takes our fund-raising onto another level, said Nigel Libby. Since my wife, Julie and I started this journey we have been overwhelmed by the generosity and kindness both within our local community and further afield. It's been this belief in the cause and that of our daughter, Ellie, which has inspired the project and our commitment to see Ellies Haven up and running.
Ellies Haven has already raised £250,000 since the charity was set up two years ago.
