Our Funders

The Co-op Local Community Fund

Dancing for Well-Being was selected as one of the Co-op’s local community causes for 2019/20!

Over the year £8527 was raised for Dancing for Well-Being – a tremendous sum! We want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to the Co-op for choosing us as one of Harrogate’s local causes and to all the Co-op members who voted to support us. 

Our Hampsthwaite group gave Co-op Manager, Nicola Major, a warm welcome when she visited the group on 11th March 2020. Nicola said “I really enjoyed this morning. It made it come to life actually joining in with you all and seeing how much people enjoy the group and what you do”. Nicola’s dancing was so good we made her an honoroury member! Her tea drinking, biscuit-eating and chatting skills were also very much up to scratch.  

The People’s Project 2019

We were delighted to receive a £5,000 award as a runner-up in the 2019 People’s Projects!

The People’s Projects is a partnership between The National Lottery, The National Lottery Community Fund and ITV which gives the public the chance to have a say in how National Lottery funding is spent in their local community.

The National Lottery has shortlisted 5 community organisations in each ITV region, so 95 in total across the UK and everyone at Dancing for Well-Being was delighted to be one of the 5 organisations shortlisted in the ITV Calendar North region.
