Lottery funding

June 23, 2008


Great response to the FREdome Visionary Trust in Paris

FREdome founder Greg Peachey’s January 2008 visit to the Meridian Hotel Paris, where he pitched the FREdome concept to the Best Western Hotel chain, was met with an enthusiastic response. Twenty franchisees came forward to express interest in rolling out the model in their own areas of the UK, using a local Best Western Hotel as a base for people to hold community events and workshops for idea generation with a local website in support. Greg has since contacted each of the hoteliers individually to establish a dialogue.

The response from Best Western gave FREdome the impetus it needed to aim for further funding from the Lottery to cover the administrative costs of the next stage in England. FREdome will apply for £442,000 for release in October. Greg is confident, “Crucially, we can show the measured benefits of the FREdome model and a proven track record of success in creating tangible results from previous grants,” he said.
