thank you

Thanks to public support Defra has agreed to invest in Rural Community Councils across England for 2015/16. In January  with news that one of our main sources of funding was about to be withdrawn, the RCC network of charities embarked on a frantic campaign to see if people would support us in lobbying Defra.  Within a couple of weeks we received support from more than 13,000 people signing our petition and some very humbling letters of support. To all the people that have supported us in different ways we say a huge “thank you”!

Of course, we don’t know what the future holds after that, so during this time we will continue to develop alternative ways of funding our work while minimising the impact on the communities we serve.   Again, thank you to everyone that has expressed their support.
