Lottery grant success for Diabetes UK

Congratulations to Lesley Hynes Fundraising client, Diabetes UK.  The charity has just secured £414,000 from Big Lottery Reaching Communities for its 'Healthy Lifestyles Road Show' which will target seventy of the most deprived communities in England and educate and support people to lead healthier lifestyles and improve their long-term health outcomes.  

Helen Ibbunson, Head of Major Supporters at Diabetes UK said, "This was a great team effort, we are delighted.  Lesley Hynes Fundraising made some critical interventions and was a great support to the member of staff who wrote the application.  Lesley spent a day working with our fundraiser on the telephone to help him strengthen the bid, and we are very pleased we sought her help" 

Lesley Hynes Fundraising helped Diabetes UK to structure the bid and commented on both first and second stage applications.  The cost to Diabetes UK was £450 + VAT.
