Good news, we have the Mayor of London's support for our project. A big, big, big thank you to everyone who has helped the Step Up to Work campaign by pledging, sharing, commenting and liking the project. With this invaluable help early on in the campaign you put us in a great position to be selected for the Mayors pledge. From 66 initial ideas from across the capital, with 43 projects progressing to the appraisal process 23 campaigns in 14 different London boroughs were selected for the Mayors backing and the ‘Step Up To Work - thinkFOUNDATION’ was one of them! Representing Waltham Forest and the Leyton, Lea Bridge area we hope to do our local community proud and be a flagship enterprise providing opportunities for people struggling to get into work. The Mayor has pledged £25,000 to the campaign for which we are truly grateful. With your help we have raised almost £12,000 meaning - with the Mayors pledge - we have £4,000 left to raise by the end of August 12th. The Countdown begins! We have just over 30 days to reach our target and raise that last 10%. In order to make the project happen we still need your help; to raise the profile, raise money and raise the bar for what can be achieved when is comes to providing people with opportunities to Step Up To Work. Join us in creating change and support the thinkFOUNDATION being created - - please do continue to share the link and let people know what we are doing.
