The Don Bar is a bar and museum for veterans, in the North East, which supports a wide range of ages and abilities.
Following a community grant application from Nicola, Registered Manager for Cambian in Teesside, the Foundation awarded £500 towards fitting a stair lift into the Don Bar’s new premises. This will allow the veterans to access the museum, which will be based upstairs within the new property.
The Don Bar has a huge positive impact on the community due to the outreach work completed, such as feeding and housing veterans and offering mental health support and help to get them back on their feet.
Nicola nominated the Don Bar for an award due to the significant work they do within the community, the history behind the Don Bar, and the thoughtfulness and care the team behind the Don Bar has to the wider community.
‘This charity does wonders for a silent group of people within our community, who have given up so much for so many.’
