Looking for ideas.
In a nutshell, I suffer from COPD and AF. For the past 8 years, I have been a regular volunteer with the Greyhound Trus in Essex, helping to home retired greyhounds.
Due to a worsening of my condition I am now unable to be very active at all, physically. In addition, I have two retired greyhounds (Ted and Ruby) who I have to often rely on friends to walk them.
The acquisition of a mobility scooter would allow me to get back to the level of volunteering that I was at as well as being able to take Ted and Ruby on longer walks. The foldaway scooter would allow me to drive to promotional events whereby I can then access our stand etc.
I do have a Justgiving site where I have already raised £450 but am still very short of the target required.
I am looking for ideas as to where else I can apply for a small grant. Have already tried some organisations but no joy as yet.
