The Million Pound Drop!

01 March 2021

This year marks our 10th Anniversary, over the last ten years we have distributed over £1,000,000 of grants to local organisations and, in spite of the economic impact of the recent coronavirus situation, we still have invested funds of £3 million, which provides a stable income to distribute alongside shorter-term donations and funding. In 2019/20 we distributed £306,412 (excluding Covid funds) and the number of grants distributed rose from 207 in 2018/19 to 251 in 2019/20, and this reflects a continuing improvement in our core aim of increasing local giving to local organisation.
