Applications for Charity of the year
Invitation to apply for financial donations
If you’re passionate about a local charity or good cause we may be able to provide financial support (initially in the region of £1,000) in the form of a donation.
Submissions should contain relevant background information relating to the cause/charity & detail the positive impact on the local community. For exciting organisations, the most recent financial report should be included. Our aim is to select two main causes/ charities which we can support during the year along with our normal community donations.
Please send applications to The Secretary at the address below, alternatively email Nalda.email@example.com to be received no later than 16th May 2022. All applications will be considered by the Board from which a short list will be compiled for members to vote on at the Annual Members Meeting to be held 14th June 2022. All applications will be notified of the outcome by beginning of July 2022.
