We are pleased to announce we have been awarded a very generous grant by the Headley Trust, one of the Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts, who are giving us £30,000 a year for three years. The grant is towards core costs, but the Headley Trust was especially impressed by the projects Remap has been doing in the last year to help athletes and sportspeople.

Many thanks to the Headley Trust for this magnificent contribution to Remap’s work.

Two lovely people doing fundraising for Remap – Wendy Ward, the daughter of Roger Allen of the South Bucks panel, is climbing Snowdon on June 30th, and Helen Williams is doing a sky-dive! At the time of writing we don’t know Helen’s connection with Remap. Can anyone enlighten us?

The CEO was at Broadcasting House last Thursday to hear Quentin Cooper record his appeal for funds for Remap, to be broadcast on Sunday 15 April. He did an excellent job of conveying in just two minutes what a marvellous charity Remap is. Special mention was made of a project to help Derek, who lost his legs in Afghanistan but is trying for a paralympics medal later this year. For more about this, see the next blog posting.

Quentin is the presenter of Radio 4’s Material World, and has a strong interest in science and technology. As well as recording our appeal he paid tribute to Remap in a separate statement which the BBC will use in publicity for the appeal on its website.

The appeal will be broadcast at 7.55 am and 21.26 on Sunday 15 April and repeated on Thursday 19 April at 15.27.
Please let everyone you can know that it is taking place.
