In September 2008 we received an extremely generous loan of £345,000 from the Julie Wilkins Trust in order to facilitate the purchase of our headquarters at 61 The Broadway, Dudley.

This was a 10 year loan and by September 2018 we had very nearly paid it back completely. Fortunately, the trustees of the Julie Wilkins Trust gifted us with one additional year to make the final payment.

We are now delighted to announce that in September of this year we were able to pay the final instalment, and we are now proud owners of our headquarters – THANK YOU, LORD!

This loan has been so much more than a financial blessing – it has well and truly equipped Saltmine to be Faith Motivated Arts. It has allowed us to serve God through our work and enabled us to journey into our 40th year in 2020.

Our deepest and sincerest thanks must go to Ian, Julie, a precious lady who has now sadly passed away, and Mark (trustee). Thank you for believing in us and this project.

Huge thanks must also go to all of our supporters who have given faithfully and generously over the past decade. Whichever of our numerous fundraising schemes you so willingly gave through and to, we have so much gratitude for what you have all provided.

We could not have climbed this fundraising mountain without such wonderful support. We lift our hands humbly in gratitude to God for the faithfulness of His Family.

With grateful thanks and blessings,

Rachael Orrell CEO
