Comments From A Client

Colin Williamson puts everything he has into supporting not for profits to secure funding. He has phenomenal expertise in many areas, including bid writing, financial projection, ICT and he also has a wealth of knowledge about the sector. He is extremely well informed about available funding streams.

More importantly, Colin has a heart the size of Jupiter. His kindness, his sense of humour and positivity has kept us going even on the toughest days and if you are struggling as we were, there will be days when you write long rambling emails demanding goodness knows what response, and Colin will reply, making sense of it all.

At every turn, Colin has been Pooh to our Eeyore, and now, thanks to him, our shrivelled balloon jar has been replaced by an amazing pot of funding from The National Lottery Community Fund! Thanks to Colin we have security for five years and the chance to grow. Anyone involved in supporting vulnerable people will understand just how much this means to us and to the community we serve.

So thank you Colin, from the bottom of our hearts.

Big Love from Becky, Jo and everyone at The Friendship Cafe Walsall CIC XXX
