Nova on Twitter

@nova_newopps Thank you @coxandkingsUK for helping us to raise £6,000 to support our #community

We are counting on your support


We are very grateful for the amount of funding we receive from government and trusts, without which none of our services could exist. However, the services we provide cost over half a million pounds each year to run. We now need to generate more income if we are to continue providing this vital service for the next 30 years. We would like to invite you to be a part of Nova’s work and ongoing sustainability by donating some money to allow us to continue our work.
