Curious Pilgrims awarded emergency grant by The Prince’s Countryside Fund
During the past weeks, and as a response to the COVID19 outbreak, Curious Pilgrims has been busy adapting its ethos and focussing on wellbeing to support its immediate community on Bressay.
"Throughout the years, Renzo’s music has taken us to several countries across the world, and we have been very fortunate to meet and work with wonderful people. We have always been keen to apply our various skills to help others wherever and whenever we could, so supporting our immediate community in such trying times was the most logical thing for us to do.
We are immensely grateful to The Prince’s Countryside Fund for awarding an emergency grant to Curious Pilgrims to help sustain a prescription delivery service to Bressay residents for the next five months. As a community interest company the funds are reinvested in the organisation for the development and provision of more projects and activities that benefit our community. We would like to encourage Bressay residents to get in touch with us should they require assistance or wish to benefit from this project, which is scheduled to run until October 2020,” said Gaby, co-founder of Curious Pilgrims.
