Our Funding

Our Funding

Sources of income

LCV is run entirely by volunteers, so our operating costs are small. However, we do need to meet the expenses of the group, including owning our minibus, maintaining and replacing our tools, recruiting new volunteers, and administration.

We charge our clients modest expenses for our work. They pay our travelling expenses and £5 per volunteer per day.

We carry out our own fundraising work. We have an annual ceilidh, and we raise money for specific projects when necessary.
