Duncan & Toplis are delighted to be supporting Tonic Health with grant funding through their charitable arm, the Duncan & Toplis Foundation.
Tonic Health are a health and wellbeing charity, registered with the Charity Commission in 2016, providing community support to the people of South Holland, Boston, and beyond from three main sites at Spalding, Holbeach, and Surfleet. They work with the community to support people of all demographics, who may fall between eligibility criteria thereby missing out on statutory support i.e. they are not considered ‘well’ enough to support themselves in society, but not to the extent to qualify for statutory support from others.
The charity offers various activities to support their users through peer-led groups, and “sector-specific” activities, including support for people with their mental health, early-onset dementia, Veterans, youth clubs, and adults with additional needs. Many of the project support staff and volunteers come from a place of lived experience, making them well-placed to offer non-clinical support to those in need. Striving to be the ‘go-to’ organisation for health and wellbeing support in the community, Tonic Health attracts funding through project-specific grants, commercial activities, and donations.
Speaking about the difference the grant will make to Tonic Health, Michael Morris, Chair of Trustees, said:
“The grant received from the Duncan & Toplis Foundation will allow us to purchase two 3D printers for use in our digital craft den at Holbeach Hub, meaning that our beneficiaries have extra tools to use, learn, produce, and work together for their own benefit and for a wider commercial offer from Tonic Health.
Our beneficiaries will be learning new skills, and be part of a team – working together, learning together, and giving them a greater sense of purpose.
We are very grateful to the Duncan & Toplis Foundation for their generosity and look forward to sharing some of the new products made from it in due course.”
Speaking of the grant, Alistair Main, Director at Duncan & Toplis Spalding office and trustee of the Duncan & Toplis Foundation said:
“We are delighted to be supporting Tonic Health with their important work supporting physical and mental health and wellbeing in our regions. We hope that the printing project is a success, and look forward to seeing the finished 3D-printed products soon!”
