The John Holt Foundation's Success Since Secret Millionaire

- Launched a card-making workshop where all proceeds from sales go towards the charity's activities
How the Secret Millionaire Money was used
- To put a down payment on rent for new premises in an ideal location as they were being forced out of their previous building due to change of ownership.
- To buy equipment and materials for their new premises.
Ongoing Contact and Support from Pimlico
- Charlie has kept in touch and a team of tradesmen from Pimlico are going to ensure that their new building is fully operational by fitting a new kitchen, plumbing in the washing machine, installing the new cooker, fitting a new shower area and painting and decorating.
- A fleet of Pimlico vans have been back and forth to Warrington delivering materials for their new building.
- The John Holt Cancer Support Foundation was a very special guest at Pimlico’s Christmas party.
