I’m absolutely thrilled to share some fantastic news with you about recent achievements and some of the recognitions that have come our way.
Firstly, I’m humbled to have been named Bacup’s Best Business Ally at the Bacup Business Association Awards. This recognition is not just for my work through GrowTraffic but also for my involvement with The Let’s Talk Project, Bacup 2040, the Bacup Cultural Consortium and other community projects. It’s been a journey and GrowTraffic continues to be a significant part of it.
But the story doesn’t end with GrowTraffic, the story continues with other Global Hyper Mega Net (GHMN) affiliated businesses.
I’m also delighted to announce that The Let’s Talk Project CIC, which I co-founded, received a special recognition certificate. For those unfamiliar, this project is all about offering emotional support and a listening ear to the people of Rossendale. It’s a cause close to my heart, focusing on the emotional well-being of individuals.
And guess what? The good news keeps rolling in! In October, The Let’s Talk Project was blessed with three generous donations:
- ASDA in Rawtenstall kindly donated £668.
- Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care Board Social Prescribing Programme contributed £2,350.
- And a whopping £8,916 came from The National Lottery Community Fund.
These funds are invaluable to The Let’s Talk Project. Driven by a team of 13 dedicated volunteers, this funding has paved the way for our project’s very first part-time paid position.
I’d like to take a moment to express my gratitude: “It’s really brilliant to be acknowledged for the efforts in and around the Bacup area. But this award is not just about me. It’s a testament to the dedication and hard work of all the GrowFos at GrowTraffic. Their commitment to our community is unwavering.”
Furthermore, I’m immensely proud of the silent efforts at The Let’s Talk Project. A massive shoutout to our listening support practitioners. Their dedication and commitment to helping others are unparalleled, and without them, this project wouldn’t be where it is today.
Thank you for your continued support, and here’s to many more successes in the future!
