Funding – 04/01/23

We are delighted to share that Woodsy’s Pantry has been awarded a grant from the Kenwood Community fund, administered by the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Community Foundation. Woodsy’s Pantry is an ongoing project, which has been running for over 20 months and is partly funded by the local authority. The grant from the Kenwood Community fund allows us to maintain the operation of this much needed service. The Grant will help towards the cost of electricity bills, purchasing food, advertising etc. We are extremely grateful for the grant as it will provide a huge help to both Woodsy’s Pantry and the local community who use the service.
