Thank You

We would just like to say a huge big thank you to Roger and all the team at Ellwood Electrical Wholesalers for their contribution of material to help fit out our new offices in Carlisle Street. It really means a lot when we get support like this from local businesses
Thank you so much from everyone involved with GoFar


Brelms Trust

The Brelms Trust

We are pleased to announce and say a massive thank you to The Brelms Trust for granting funding of £14,600 to help GoFar fund projects over the next 3 years.
The projects planned will include theatre outings, afternoon tea trips and other cultural events. This funding will allow the Goole GoFar to offer reduced transport costs for these events to those in the community that find themselves socially excluded.

Please keep checking our website and social media pages for further updates

New Premises Shaping Up

Our new offices are starting to take shape


Premises

Awards for All – Community Fund
We are extremely pleased to announce that we have received £10,000 in funding from The National Lottery Community Fund.
The funding has helped us to purchase and convert two former freezer trailers into office space for when we move premises at the end of this month. Without the help of the Community Fund we really would have struggled to find a suitable “base of operations” and our ability to help those within our community that rely on us would have been severely affected. Big thanks to @TNLComFund from everyone here at GoFar and our service users for having the faith to back us as we move on to the next phase of our development
Please keep checking our website and social media pages as more photos will be produced as the work progresses and we move in

Goole GoFar – “Transport at the Heart of the Community”


Big Changes

As you may…or may not be aware, The Gofar is on the move both physically and digitally

The Port of Goole is getting busier and our compound on West Dock is required for the expansion. So.….our offices are moving….Don’t worry we will still be in Goole and within walking distance (more news of that soon)

We also thought that the move will give us the chance to update/renew/revamp our website…new beginnings as it were!  So if you visit the website over the next few weeks don’t be surprised if things don’t get updated….we are saving it all for our brand spanking new website

In the meantime you can still find us on Facebook and Twitter


E mail

We are having some problems with our emails at the moment folks. If you wish to contact our Business Manager  (Christine) It would be best to call the office on 01405 780 344 or send a message via Andy Smiths email. Hopefully this problem will be sorted soon

Thanks


We Are Hiring

We are hiring folks…If you love to drive, love helping others and have some time on your hands….This could be for you….


Happy New Year

Just to say a very Happy New Year to all our members and supporters, here’s hoping 2019 will be a good one for you all.

There will be “stuff” going on this year….Details will follow when we know what’s happening ourselves….Watch this space….page….web site

Health and happiness to all


50 Club Draw

So the last ever 50 Club draw has been made. The three winners are….
1st Prize – No.14 – Chessman
2nd Prize – No. 2 – Leak
3rd Prize – No. 9 – Kitchen
Congratulations to all three

So folks, unfortunately our 50 Club Draw has come to an end. It has helped us out over the years and we have to say a big big thank you to everyone who supported us with this fundraising idea.


Garfield Weston Foundation

We would like to say a huge thank you to the Garfield Weston Foundation for their grant of £10,000. to help support Gofar. This is amazing and will allow us to continue helping those in our community that are most in need of our services.

Thank you so much, it really will make a big difference
