In November 2017 we learned that our application to the Santander Foundation was successful. The grant will be used to help fund a part time member of staff which means that we can continue to offer excellent support to our trainees. Amy, Emma and Sarah went to visit the Beeston Santander branch to receive our Cheque (which is actually bigger than Amy!) Thanks so much to Santander and the lovely staff there for their generosity and warmth. We look forward to seeing Kayleigh and Maria visit us to see the Café first hand.
Ever since Kimberley’s new Co-op opened they have been busy promoting local causes and supporting the community. Rumbletums was delighted to be picked as one of their local causes to benefit from the Co-op Community Foundation. 1% of all Co-op branded groceries was donated between 3 local causes which came to a fantastic £2,500 for us. Thanks so much to Co-op and all those dedicated shoppers! We will be using their grant to help make Rumbletums a great Café experience so look out for some improvements and refurbs in the coming months. Happy Days!
This year Rumbletums has been fortunate to have the Nottingham engineering firm LB Foster partner with us in Fund raising. We started off the year with a cake sale and made sure that the folks there got a flavour of our lovely home-made produce. The cake theme continued when, as part of Christmas jumper day, one of Derek’s gorgeous Angel Christmas cakes was raffled off to the lucky LB Foster employees. So far, they have raised a generous £344.05 for us for which we are grateful. Many thanks and more power to the engineers!!
Good news you can help fund our cause and even better… it’s simple and easy to do!
This year very luckily we have been chosen by both Co-op and Tesco’s to potentially receive some funding.
BUT… we need your help if you shop at Local Co-op Maws Lane Branch or Tesco’s Extra in Ilkeston.
Here’s how to help if you shop at Tesco’s Ilkeston:
Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being awarded to local community projects.
Three groups in every Tesco region have been shortlisted to receive the cash award and shoppers are being invited to head along to Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant.
Rumbletums is one of the groups on the shortlist.
Voting is open in stores throughout May and June. Customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop.
Here’s how to help if you shop at Co-op Maws Lane:
The latest round of Co-op Local Community Fund is now open, which means that our members can choose to give 1% of what they spend on Co-op branded products and services to your cause.
The funding for your cause will come from Co-op Members. We give 1% of everything our members spend on Co-op branded products and services to a local cause they choose – and they’ll be able to choose your cause from 9 April to 7 October 2017.
Every time our members buy Co‑op branded products and services, from buying a loaf of bread to planning a funeral, 1% of their spend goes to a local cause, like yours. For the 6 months you’re part of the fund the money builds up. Throughout the 6 months, members can choose which cause their contribution goes to.
Please head to the Co-op at Maws Lane to sign up to the Membership and start fundraising for us today!
What a year it has been for Rumbletums! We kick started the year with a piece on BBC East Midlands today and have ended it on receiving an award from The Houses of Parliament for the most Inspirational Community Group. Words can’t describe how proud we are to receive such an award.
So here comes the thank yous. First of all a big thank you to Anna Soubry who has always supported Rumbletums and put our name forward for the award. Secondly thank you to the amazing board of Trustees who first conceived the idea of Rumbletums and still continue to nurture the project and make it what it is today. A HUGE thank you to our fantastic staff and volunteer team whom each and every single day offer their time, skills, kindness and the understanding of what our young people need. . We of course need to mention our brilliant customers who support the cafe and everything that the project stands for.
But… Lastly and most importantly a huge thank you to our fantastic group of trainees whom on a daily basis show dedication, willingness but what impress us the most is the utter determination to learn new life and work skills whatever their ability.
Let’s see what 2017 has to offer!
