“Thank you Lucy, you were amazing, couldn’t have done it without you” 

Susan Rowlands, The Ferret (Preston)

“Lucy stepped in to help us with our Arts Council application right when our project was on the precipice and prospects weren’t looking too hopeful. Her immediate understanding of our unique situation was impressive, and her guidance was clear, on point, and professional throughout. She cut through the chaos of the application forms and processes, and made an overwhelming task seem perfectly achievable. We were awarded the full grant and it has completely changed the prospects of our venture – we couldn’t recommend her services more.” 

Tom Ogilvie, Patchwork Studios (Bristol)

“Lucy was brilliant throughout the bid writing process from providing clear guidance on how to answer the questions, to advising how to structure the financial elements of the bid. This made our bid stronger and we were absolutely delighted to find that the bid was successful.”

Sally Currie, The New Adelphi Club (Hull)
