Please can you pass on our thanks to Frimley Fuel Allotments for their kind and generous grants over the years to help towards the hall rebuilding fund, internal decorations, fire safety improvements, a new boiler and recently help towards converting our huddle room into shower facilities for sleepovers.
The grants you have provided have helped immensely with the feel of the hall and made it more appealing to outside parties. The feedback regarding the conversion of the huddle room to a shower room have so far have been positive.
Thank you for your continuous support.

‘Portesbery School caters for children with severe learning difficulties and we have a number of students with profound and multiple disabilities. We are so grateful to Frimley Fuel Allotments for funding our portable Eye Gaze system, which enables our more physically disabled students to use their eyes to play cause and effect games on the computer, which can eventually lead to using Eye Gaze to make choices and communicate. The system is in constant use and will make such a difference to so many of our students and their families.’

We were thrilled and delighted to receive a very generous donation of £6,000 towards the refurbishment of our kitchen.
Hospitality is at the heart of St Mary’s, and with over 43 separate groups using our premises, and hosting over 600 people a week through our doors, our catering facilities are in much needed demand!
Your generosity has enabled us to increase the number of people we can serve, and reduce the amount of time taken to do so. Our upgraded kitchen now has a purpose built cooker, microwave, dishwasher and portable bain-marie, and a kitchen design suited to preparing, cooking and serving refreshments and hot meals efficiently and effectively.
At Christmas we served a three course hot meal from scratch to over 80 people – something that would not have been possible before the upgrade. Many of these are isolated and lonely people, who would otherwise have had little contact with other over Christmas. What a difference it made to them!
In the Autumn term we hosted a chef giving a series of six cooking lessons to several local families. It was so encouraging to see our Kitchen being used as a training venue, and so rewarding to see local parents learning to prepare delicious and healthy meals on a budget. Meals from a different country were featured each week so the range of food being introduced was eye opening and mouth watering!
Once again, thanks you for your generous donation.
As you can see from the stories above, it has made a world of difference to us and the families that we serve.
Without the generosity of Frimley Fuel Allotments, none of this would have been possible.
