More about the Hope Street Trust
We have supported the Hope Specialist Service in a variety of ways during the last eleven years, raising more than £475,000 to invest in improving the patient experience.
Since 2011, the Hope Street Trust has successfully applied for funding from Awards for All (Big Lottery Fund), Reaching Communities, the Heritage Lottery, the Ross Foundation, East Coast Community Fund, the National Lottery/Sport England (via Active Humber), Care Plus Group Charitable Trust and North East Lincolnshire Council.
We have also received support from local groups and businesses, such as Carelink, Humberston Lions, Grimsby & Cleethorpes Lions, Lindsey Oil Refinery, Social Strollers Rambling Club, Asda, Lincolnshire Co-op, Inner Wheel of Cleethorpes, Dorothy Bayles Trust, Masonic Lodge of Old Clee, Grimsby & Cleethorpes Ladybirds and Pegasus Lodge of the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes.
Of course, in addition to grant funding and donations from groups and businesses, we have received hundreds of donations, both large and small, from service users and their friends and families over the years, which have made a huge difference to the support we have been able to give to the Hope Specialist Service and we are incredibly grateful for people’s continuing generosity.
