TFGL Weekly - Hopes & Streams

  • July 29th 2018

Ben is getting pretty settled into his role as presenter now is basically just winging it, let’s hope Bex doesn’t hear it. The gang are joined by self-professed non-techie Hannah Paterson of The Big Lottery Fund, she does, however, keep busy trying to do ‘good things’.

One of those ‘good things’ you’ll get to hear about is a community mural project with a particularly personal note for Hannah. You’ll also hear about online safety for children, drones for good and they’ll be wondering why the press seems so focused on painting an increasingly bleak picture of mental health.

If you’d like to get in touch with Hannah:
