'In the 5 years since the Morgan Foundation so kindly gave us our Smiley Bus it has been the workhorse of our fleet. The Smiley Bus really has made a difference to people's lives and will continue to do so, as long as it will keep going. It is great for us to have such a large and versatile vehicle and having it from new too was a real treat and a real boost to our volunteers, as our other vehicles are much older and pre-loved more than once in most cases.'
Laurel Roberts, Chief Officer, Oswestry Community Action
'The bus has been a lifeline for our clients, bringing them from their homes daily into the centre, where they have attended courses and sports. We are very grateful for the privileged use of the bus over the last five years and hope to carry on with our work for a long time to come.
'We can't thank you enough for the kindness you showed us and the difference this bus has made to the clients' lives.'
Diane Durrant, Chairman, Centre for Independent Living
'On behalf of all at Women's Enterprising Breakthrough (WEB), I am writing to personally 'Thank You' and of course a 'Great Big Thank You' to Morgan Foundation for all their support and encouragement over the last 3 years.
'I truly believe that without your faith and support in WEB at that crucial time, that we may not have survived and gone on to achieve all the wonderful things we have done over the last 3 years. It has been a hard and difficult struggle, with many ups and downs. But I am happy to report that WEB is now +prospering and growing and reaching even more men, women and children than we ever have done before (over 650 in last 3 years of funding). I really do want 'Steve Morgan and All trustees' at the Morgan Foundation to understand how appreciative we are of all yours/their support. We feel particularly blessed to have had your support and encouragement over this period.
'Many, many thanks and our deepest respect to you all, for supporting our work to continue. It is with support from wonderful individuals and organisations like yours that
enables WEB to continue the progressive work we have done in the community for the
last 18 years.'
Bernadette King, Centre Manager, Women's Enterprising Breakthrough
'Everything we have done in the last three years points to either bigger numbers, more events and more scope, the basis of this is to have reliable transportation and the financial security in place, when around us clubs and groups have struggled, we have continued to build on everything we believe in and this is just as much down to The Morgan Foundation as well as the dedicated volunteers we have. With your help I now feel most of my dreams have been fulfilled. Thank you so much.'

The Morgan Foundation should be proud of the positive effect they have made to the day to day lives of seriously excluded young people.'
