Thank you!

Our base, Whitby Hall, is one of 11 bids which have been put forward for government funding which, if we are successful, would radically improve the building and what we're able to do in it. Last week we asked our friends, followers and those who use Whitby Hall to sign our letter of support.

The response was overwhelming, with more than a thousand signatures in five days. We've also been inundated with messages of support and testimonies from those whose lives have been impacted by the work we do in Whitby Hall. Stay tuned on Facebook and Twitter to see a sample of them.

What happens next?

We will be sending the letter, signed by the 1,100 and counting supporters, to the UK Government's Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sports to help argue the case for this much needed transformation project. We'll also send a selection of the amazing feedback we've received.

Then we wait to hear whether our funding bid has been successful.

What can I do?

If you haven't shown your support and added your name to the letter then you still can! (It only takes 30 seconds.)

You can also share the campaign on Twitter and Facebook, and tell all your friends.
