This will take place in Bristol on Saturday, 18th January, at the Quaker Central Meeting House.
If you’re an Edge Fund member based in/around Bristol and would like to help out in January, please email myself (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Andy (email@example.com).
Keep an eye out for more information on all the groups we're funding this round.
We’d like to end with a massive thank you to all our members and previously funded groups for their work scoring applications. Participatory grant-making only works if people participate, and we are very grateful for everyone’s work!
