Ladbrook Support Church Client to Funding Win!

Ladbrook were delighted to hear that, Place of Refuge Community Church, one of our church insurance clients has won ‘Highly Commended’ in the Ansvar Church Community Project Award.

Ansvar invited community churches to tell them about the great work they were doing and how an award of £10,000 might help those activities.  We decided to support our client, Place of Refuge Community Church, based in Walsall, to submit an entry.  While they did not win, they were thrilled with being Highly Commended and will be able to use their award to support their fabulous work.

The Place of Refuge entry was based on their ‘Prepare, Eat and Go’ initiative which is about engaging the local community in how to cook and eat healthy foods, even if on a very tight budget.

Denise Smith of Place of Refuge said;

“Place of Refuge Community Church was delighted to receive notification of a generous donation by Ansvar Insurance following our recent competition entry to support our PEG project. As a small Church established just seven years ago and became Registered as a Charity in 2012 we acknowledge this contribution toward the project.

We anticipate the finances will go toward the cost of sourcing a cooker of a commercial specification. This will enable us to do more as we plan to teach cookery skills to members of our community.  We are very excited about this project which will be launched with a fun day on Saturday 13th August.”

By chance, another Walsall church, Green Lane Baptist Church won the main prize with their project ‘Mend IT’- Congratulations to them too!
