Oaklea CEO & R2W Director Clive Wigley & R2W Director Sue Green are back from a weekend spent in Leicester with one of our major funders – Forbes.
Sue says; “It was an excellent and exhausting weekend of networking with 7 other organisations who had received grants from Forbes Charitable Foundation. Oaklea Group is one of only 8 charities supported by Forbes nationally. A big thank you to the Forbes Trustees for hosting a fantastic event; it was great to share and celebrate the impact that the funding has made for individuals with learning disabilities.”
Clive adds: “We had some excellent visual display boards made of some of the people who have benfited from the work we do at R2W – as powerpoint style presentations weren’t appropriate (or allowed!). I’m sure you will agree – they definitely make an impact and were a great spur to encouraging conversation and debate.”
