The Ripple Pond are awarded a Sun 50 grant

 Celebrating ordinary people doing extraordinary things


Over the past year, to mark The Sun’s 50th birthday, £1million in grants was given out to almost 100 charities, clubs and organisations nominated by readers.

There were over 8,000 nominations and grants of between £2,000 and £20,000 were made.

Handouts were awarded in six categories: Children and Young People, Health and Wellbeing, Forces and Veterans, Animals and the Environment, Emergency Heroes and International Aid (UK charities).

The Ripple Pond were lucky enough to receive a portion of this grant which we will use to continue to offer support to the Armed Forces families across the UK.

Thank you to all those that nominated us.
