04/12/13: GISDA Successful in People’s Millions
During last week, GISDA has been campaigning to win £50,000 from People’s Millions. On Friday 29th November a massive cheque arrived with the ITV news filming crew to announce that GISDA had won £50,000.
The People’s Millions is a Big Lottery grant where the public, by public vote, chooses the winner. The £50,000 will be spent to open an informal café to provide work experience, new skills, raise confidence and the motivation for young people to lead a successful independent life. The café will be equipped to create light lunch and refreshments and the young people will receive training foe cooking skills, starting their own business, food hygiene and health and safety.
The voting line for GISDA was open on Tuesday the 26th November; even though there was a strong campaign GISDA was not successful on the day. But there was one other chance of receiving the money and that was the bonus prize. During a staff meeting in Tremadog on Friday, the ITV news crew and Lottery staff came to in greet the staff with a cheque of £50,000.
Gethin Evans, Project Manager GISDA said:
“This is amazing, after we lost on Tuesday, we didn’t expect anything. Seeing the filming crew arriving with the cheque was a shock, to know that this project is being funded is great, as it will give the chance for young people to develop skills, raise confidence and a chance to receive some accreditations in various areas”.
GISDA would like to thank everyone for the support the received during their People’s Millions champagne, especially those who picked up the phone to vote on Tuesday.
