Charity finds new home with generous grant
Bideford Bridge Trust helps out relationship counselling charity to rent a new space for six months.
A CHARITY which was left homeless in Bideford is able to open once again thanks to a generous grant from the Bideford Bridge Trust.
Relationship counselling charity Relate told the Gazette in September it was desperate for a new home after the TTS building it operated from was closing.
But the grant from the Trust will enable the charity to rent a room at Northam Lodge.
Rebecca Wellaway, manager of Relate Bideford, said: “We are very grateful to the Trust for the grant which will enable us to rent a room in Bideford for six months.
