To mark a year of the fund, Metalcraft held a celebration event 18th January 2018 at the Chatteris Conservative Club, the evening was a great success with speakers from organisations that had been successful. 

From 1st Feb 2018 the funding was increased to £750 per quarter/£3000 per year and the area was extended to include not only the PE16 postcode, but the surrounding villages of Benwick, Doddington, Manea and Wimblington, launch evenings were held in all of these villages during March 2018 with all charitable organisations invited along to find out what it was all about.
