Shortlist – Improving Impact – charities with 0-3 paid staff
Who they are
TVSPF works with community organisations to provide social, leisure, cultural and sporting activities that meet local needs and bring people together.
What they’ve achieved
Thornham’s hard-working board has helped turn what was once a neglected hut into a thriving community hub that raises almost £100,000 a year.
Dedicated trustees drove the development process right from the start by gathering opinions from across the local area and ensuring everyone felt included. As a result, the number of annual activities has exploded from 140 to more than 500, with eight times more people regularly coming through the doors.
