I cannot over emphasise the value of the help and advice provided by Gary Allen for whom nothing was too much trouble. His commitment to helping us was key in the successful outcome of our appeal. Dorothy Fagge

Director, Saxby All Saints

Gary Allen has always been very helpful in helping and providing us with all the necessary information to obtain grants. Without their help we would have been struggling. Jeff Ash

The trustees have found the help and advice in securing funding has been exceptional. Help in filling in the many forms necessary for funding has been greatly appreciated. Edwin Bond

Trustee, Coronation Hall, Owston Ferry
