Funding boost for MVS Poole

The Talbot Village Trust has supported MVS Poole with a £20,000 grant to purchase and update its RIB and teaching equipment.

The Trust is the legacy of two sisters who founded Talbot Village in the mid-19th century as a reaction to rural poverty.

Head of Unit Nigel Barrow said “We are so thankful to Talbot Village Trust for providing us with the funds needed to enable more people to join our training courses and allow us to update our RIB and equipment. Since we began 24 years ago, this donation has by far been our pivotal moment.

It has allowed us to take a step forward in many different ways and we now have the right tools to assist and support more people through our service.”
