Our Best Christmas Present!

We’re delighted to announce that, just before Christmas,  we were granted £2,784.13 funding from Suffolk Community Foundation through the David & Jill Simpson Fund, in order to help us expand the Three Rivers Talking Newspaper community, following a tough period during the Covid pandemic.

The Simpson fund supports grass root organisations primarily to provide support to older people over the age of 70 years and to those groups supporting the advancement of education, the protection of good health both mental and physical and the relief of poverty and sickness in Suffolk.

The fund was established in memory of Miss Rosemary Jill Simpson and her younger brother David.  In partnership with their solicitor Jonathan Long at Ashton Legal, Suffolk Community Foundation has created a fund that interprets the passion and focus of both Jill and her brother David during their lifetime and seeks to ensure that their legacy will live on and continue to support good causes that they loved for many generations to come.

We are most grateful to the Fund and also to the wonderful staff at Suffolk Community Foundation for helping us secure this important lifeline.   And we are committed to ensuring that all funding will be used exclusively for the improvement and expansion of Three Rivers TN and the service we deliver to our listeners and the local community.
