The Plymouth Drake Foundation in a nutshell:

Our purpose is to provide financial support to voluntary & community groups and small charities in Plymouth by the giving of Grants. Grants large and small can go a long way to supporting others to develop healthy, weatlhy and lively communties in the city we call home. 
Plymouth Drake Foundation relies on donors to fund this work, every penny really does count. 

Your  small change can make a big change to others, even £2 can support a young person in crisis and £10 can towards giving a child with a disability an experience of a lifetime on Plymouth Sound.
