Is there a Leicestershire community project that could do with a little funding? Now is your chance to help them.

Everards are delighted to announce that with the support from The Everard Family Foundation and Carling once again, they’re reopening their Everards Community Excellence Fund. Nominations open on April 5 2021 and they have £40,000 available to support community projects within a 20 mile radius of an Everards pub.

This is all made possible thanks to the funding from The Everards Family Foundation and Carling.

Previous year’s fund saw an array of entries and helped to set up a number of brand-new community groups, replace very old chairs in a village hall, install a fire door at a library, buy a wheelchair for a basketball club and support a local trust who provide canal boat trips for the elderly and vulnerable, to name just a few.

If you know of a project that is struggling to get off the ground, equipment that needs replacing or a community space in desperate need of renovation get your nominations in and your community could get a share of the £40,000 fund pot.

All you need to do is complete a nomination form online.

Nominations open Monday 5 April 2021 and will close on Friday 30 April 2021. All entries will go through a judging panel in May and the winners will be notified at the end of May with projects hoping to be started in June.
