Do you know of a community project that’s in need of funding? Make sure you let them know about the launch of a new campaign from Everards and Carling, who are offering funding for local community projects across the UK, as part of their Made Local campaign.
This follows the success of last year’s ‘We Got This’ campaign, which received over 200 applications and saw 12 communities benefit from a £20,000 fund pot. Nominations are now set to open again and this is all made possible thanks to Everards relationship with Carling. The initiative encourages people to get together and create stronger communities in their local area.
Last 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.
So is there a project that you know of 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 £20,000 fund pot.
All you need to do is pop into your local Everards pub that sells Carling and complete a nomination form or you can submit a nomination online at carling.com/Everards.
Nominations open Monday 14 October and will close on Wednesday 8 January 2020. All entries will go through a judging panel in January and the winners will be notified early February 202o.
