Lottery win takes us to 2022!
We are over the moon that the National Lottery Community Fund has offered us a pot of funding that will allow us to keep providing free writing and performance workshops to the women of Teesside for another year.
We've heard from so many of our members that the sisterhood, self-expression and support they get from the TWP has helped them cope with some of the worst pressures of this past year. It was crucial for us to get this funding, so we can continue to pay our workshop leaders and keep our services free for those that need them.
The Community Fund grant will also help us try out a couple of informal volunteering projects. We will be encouraging some members to step forward as Poetry Pen Pals for those sisters who aren't able to engage with digital workshops for reasons of health or tech.
We will also be recruiting one or more Socially-Distanced Social walk planners, which will mean a summer series of outdoor walks where we can meet, read and write poetry together in some favourite locations around Teesside. New members will be very welcome to come along and meet us at these low-key, informal events.
