A new office!

The Mullany Fund has moved, to a nice new office.

We’re still based on the Swansea University Singleton campus, but now moved from a shared location to an office all of our own. The new office will allow us to do a few things differently:

  • Have a proper hub for our projects, including the Big Lottery Funded ementoring project.
  • Have a place where we can really start to show visitors what the charity is about.
  • Give us a proper home for the first time!

If you’re curious, come and visit us in the Haldene Building on the campus, we’re always happy to see anyone interested in our work. (In this busy period as our ementoring project is busily engaging with schools, it might be worth giving us a shout to make sure we have someone available to greet you, before you arrive unannounced.)

This is just another part of the jig-saw puzzle for the charity, which will hopefully see us grow to be able to help more people than ever before become socially mobile through education.

The Mullany Fund’s Future

The Charity has recently been looking at itself to try and ensure that it achieves as much as it can, while still keeping true to its foundation of tackling social mobility issues through education.

To that end, the charity is looking to evolve in two important regards over the longer term:

  1. The charity will look to expand the work that it does to cover all of Wales.
  2. The charity will look to expand the educational focus of its work to cover all subjects.

We will look to work in partnership with other organisations to achieve these aims. We will bring expertise from the work we’ve already done to help those in education achieve the future their skills and knowledge deserves.

Website work begins behind the scenes

We’ve started work on a new website. It’s going to be structured in a way that addresses our growing audiences, will let you know what we’re doing in a much more up-to-date way, and will be ready to grow with us as we look to address the social mobility issues of Wales.

In addition to the structural changes, it’s also going to be fully bilingual – with social network tie-ins to boot!

More news on developments soon!

Fund Thanks Swim Master

The Mullany Fund would like to thank supporter Catrin Jones for her fundraising efforts this year. Followers of the charity will know that Catrin has a liking for extreme outdoor swimming events.

This year Catrin ventured out of British waters and jetted off to New York  to do The Governors Island Swim – a 2 mile event in the Hudson river.  She also did a number of other swimming challenges including a repeat of the Great Welsh Swim  (3.8k sea swim) and the Great London Swim (1 mile).

Unlike an indoor swimming pool, a stretch of open water is a wild and uncontrolled environment, which adds markedly to the challenge.

“I’ve completely got the open swimming bug.  While swimming up and down a 25m pool can be boring outdoor swimming can be incredibly exciting and there’s often the added sense of battling with, and overcoming the elements.”

You can donate at Catrin’s Fundraising Page.
