First, exciting charity news!
Wolverhampton-based health company PAYCARE has stepped forward with an offer to help save us, with significant support in the form of partnership investment, which will enable us to continue to operate and build new audiences. Kevin Rogers, CEO of Paycare (pictured above with Kelly Jeffs of Light House) says:“Our support will not only enable Light House to continue to operate, but our ongoing partnership will ensure that it is able to truly thrive and prosper, and retain its reputation as one of the city's most valued and treasured community landmarks.” The support Paycare has announced will for the time being ‘save’ Light House. To operate long term we’ll continue to be heavily reliant on customer donations, but this corporate help has enabled us to stay open while we put our new business plan in place, and we are hugely grateful. For more details click here
