MAYFACS are over the moon to confirm vital support

from National Lottery funding


MAYFACS is over the moon to confirm we have been awarded vital funding from The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK, to enable us to develop and enhance our services within Mayfield and Five Ashes over the next 3 years – to survive and thrive!

National Lottery funding will allow us to broaden our reach by supporting our core services to increase the range of activities and support provided, to continue to deliver a dependable service and increase opportunities for volunteers as we move into our next stage of development within Mayfield and Five Ashes. 

We will be able to build on the valuable services we offer already, work towards reaching more people within our community, and do more to support people, of all ages, to combat isolation and loneliness. We will continue to integrate our Community Shed to bring opportunities for skill development, regular activities and sessions for our “Shedders”, and intergenerational projects.

National Lottery players raise over £30 million a week for good causes across the UK. The National Lottery Community Fund distributes a share of this to projects to support people and communities to prosper and thrive.
