Funding

Historically Wings has relied almost exclusively on individual and charitable donations but in 2007, our Trustees recognised the need to widen the base of our funding and set the long term goal of spreading the financial requirements onto statutory, business as well as charitable funding.

We have received considerable support from individuals, churches, local and national charities and other organisations since Wings was formed including:

 Aspect Capital Barclays Bank Bideford Bridge Rotary Club
 Bideford Bridge Trust Cedric Bennett Trust Clothworkers' Foundation
 Cruddas Foundation Devon Renaissance Dulverton Trust
 Dyers Ernest Cook Trust Eddie Riley Memorial Trust
 Futurebuilders Garfield Weston HBOS
 Henry Smith Foundation Hintze Family Charitable Trust Ginning Family Trust
 J Paul Getty Jnr Charitable Trust Lankelly Chase Laing Foundation
 Leader + Leader 4 Lloyds TSB
 Local Network Fund Mercers MR Cannon Trust
 Norman Family Trust Paul Hamlyn Foundation Pilgrim Trust
 Sants Charity Tesco Charity Trust Tudor Trust
 UK Online v-inspired Western Power
 Zurich Foundation    

 

From a statutory perspective we have received funding, gained contracts or won tenders from a wide number of schools and other bodies including

 Bideford College Petroc CAFs
 Learning and Skills Council Pilton College Marland Schools
 Pupil Referral Units Junior Schools My Life
 Devon County Council Connexions  

 

Our business initiatives are starting to bring money into the charity most notably the commercial garage operation that runs alongside our motor mechanics training courses (Trax). We continue to look at other revenue streams including those connected with multimedia and, hopefully, horticulture and construction.
