Would you like to hear some really, really, really, good news?
I’m reminded of that sense of victory in Good Will Hunting when Will gets the girl’s phone number!
Will: Do you like apples?
Will: Well, I got her number. How do you like them apples?
That’s how I felt yesterday, let me explain…
Most of you here know that my wife and I do our utmost to create awareness about Autism down here, help the local school, run the support organization and lately trying to plan an adult care center.
It’s difficult trying to run a charity from home, we thought that a full time office was required along with the necessary infrastructure (staff, furniture, telephones, computer, signage etc.) We think that with the infrastructure in place it might be easier to move forward, support the school more efficiently and perhaps attain our dream of an adult care facility.
So, a couple of years ago we started the lengthy form filling, meetings, negotiations with our local Lottery Board, set out our plans for the concept of an office and requested funding, guess what?
Next step (to quote Buzz Lightyear) ‘the adult care center and beyond!’
(Divide the number by about 10½ to get pounds = ±£41,000 ! :))
