Tandridge Together Community Fund awards £23,940 to local organisations


The Tandridge Together Community Fund has awarded £23,940, in grants of up to £2,000 to local organisations to help fund initiatives, which will directly benefit the health and wellbeing of residents.

These grants will help projects, such as:

  • A wide variety of workshops for students, adults and young adults with learning disabilities, disabilities and/or mental health challenges.
  • Numerous projects encouraging residents to get more active and prevent social isolation.
  • Providing shoes for children from low-income families.
  • Providing a specialist counsellor for people who breastfeed and a referral co-ordinator at a baby bank.
  • Funding for a benefits advisor to help vision and hearing impaired residents.

These valuable grants are available each year thanks to the continued success of the Tandridge Together Lottery, as ten pence from every £1 ticket is allocated to this fund. 50p of the ticket price also goes to the player’s chosen local good cause.

Councillor Jackie Wren, Chair of the Community Services Committee, said: “We are absolutely delighted to fund nearly £24,000 in grants, which will help support vital work carried out by our local voluntary and community organisations across the district.

Thank you to everyone who supports the Tandridge Together Lottery by buying tickets regularly. Since the lottery started in 2018, £125,000 has been won in cash prizes and more than £350,000 has been raised to support good causes.”
