We are at ‘how the light gets in festival’

blink are excited to announce that we have a wellbeing tent at the world's largest philosophy and music festival this May!

We'll be running mindfulness activities, offering a quiet space and raising awareness about blink as a whole. We will also have fully qualified professional therapists offering professional support throughout the festival.

We're so grateful to those who have offered to volunteer their time and energy to help us at How The Light Gets In; without our community of blinkers this wouldn't be possible. Thank you.

Special thanks to Go Custom Clothing and JA Burke Construction Ltd too; for providing our volunteers with their blink clothing and sponsorship to make the event happen.

This is going to be incredible and we cannot wait!

We will be sure to update you all on the festival once we return, so keep an eye out on social media and our website.

Will you be heading to How The Light Gets In this May? Why not pop by our tent and see what we're about!

£8,000 Lottery Funding

Blink are delighted to announce that this week we received the news that the National Lottery Community Fund has awarded us £8,000 towards our campaign.

Yes, you read that right! £8,000... £8,000 !?

This was our first grant bid, and since we’ve only been a community organisation since last August, we are even more stoked about this news.

Part of the grant will be used to help set up our safeguarding and referral procedures; so when we start providing our core service of providing therapy to people, everything is ‘tickety-boo’

The other part of the grant will be used to help us set-up as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation. This will give us official charity status, that will open us up to more grants, more opportunities, and provide assurance to our supporters that we truly are not for profit . 

Watch this space for bigger and better things to come from blink
