Fibromyalgia Awareness Northern Ireland

Since having to close our premises where we have our office & charity shop, we have not been able to generate any funds in order to maintain paying our basic bills.

 

These include

Rent, Electric, Heating, Phone, Internet

 

These bills are usually covered by revinue greated by our charity shop, and since closing we have had to set in place an overdraft facility on our account, Just incase we can't have money in on time for bills. 
I have personally maxed out my credit cards, and now have to start paying those off.

As a registered charity we at FM.A.NI can apply for grants to help in funding different things we undertake in the organisation.

 

As we know the difficulties everyone is facing due to this COVID-19 cirsis, funding bodies have suspended most of their main funding applications & focusing on COVID-19 related issues charaties are facing now.

 

We at FM.A.NI have been lucky enough to secure a grant from the

National Lottery Community Fund Grant

This enabled us to purchase laptops so that our volunteers could continue with our supoprt network while being at home. It is because of grants like these small independant organisations like ours are able to continue what we would normally do while in the office.

 

We would like to say a huge thanks to the Lottery Community Fund for the grant

of £3000  for new Laptops so that we are able continue with this importand work that 

a lot of people depend apon on a regular daily basis.
