The Trustees also identified a number of projects that might be supported by other means. We are excited to announce that a number of Fat Beehive staff have volunteered their time to help with some of the digital projects, supporting these charities to improve donation practices, branding, UX, UI, SEO and content writing for digital.
The Fat Beehive Foundation were able to provide funding to Spark Inside a charity that helps young people in prison to have a purpose to strive towards upon release: a more attractive alternative to a return to crime. The grant has been used to develop a digital project to help rehabilitate young offenders in prison, who have been particularly isolated due to Covid-19.Spark Inside Hero's Journey

The Foundation has provided funds towards a virtual climate change garden for the future, engaging with schools, environmental volunteers and helping to support the mental health and wellbeing of the community that has been hugely impacted by COVID-19.Climate Change Garden for the Future
