Watford FC's Community Sports & Education Trust
Emma Power, Scheme Manager for Home-Start Watford & Three Rivers:
"We entered into the Building Effectiveness programme full of ideas and with opportunities in place – not expecting to achieve anywhere near what we have in the last twelve months. I had no idea there would be a ‘winner’ and we are over the moon with the generous donation! In true Building Effectiveness spirit I hope to make use of the donation to further develop our sustainability into the future.
Personally, it has been an incredible learning curve for me, which I have thoroughly enjoyed! From Will’s ‘just get on with it’ attitude, Henry’s fabulous insight into branding to Sue’s training and support.
In a hectic year filled with challenges the ‘time out’ at Will’s house provided time to think and learn from my peers – thank you Will, Sarah and Dawn for facilitating these meetings.
We now find ourselves in a more sustainable position with two shops open and the lottery bid in place - looking forward to a year where we focus on the services we provide to families rather than ‘surviving’
Thank you all for helping us achieve this."
Henry Holland-Hibbert, Home-Start's business mentor:
"Great result Home-Start team and well deserved. Your enthusiasm makes it all worthwhile. All the best!"
Sue Pearlman, their HCF advisor:
"It was a real privilege to meet such a committed, energetic and enthusiastic people... I'm so pleased for you all. You deserved to win!"
