Grants of up to £2,000 available to local good causes
Tandridge District Council is inviting local good causes to apply for grants of up to £2,000, which will be awarded to local charities and voluntary groups which can demonstrate the work they do helps support people living in the district.
Thanks to the success of the Tandridge Together Lottery, which launched in March 2018, the fund available to local good causes this year has increased. 10p from every ticket sold goes directly into the Tandridge Together Community Fund for the Council to distribute in small grants. This year, an overall fund up to £33,500 is available, made up of £16,500 raised by people buying tickets for the Tandridge Together Lottery and £17,000 from the Council’s Small Grants Fund.
Local good causes are invited to apply for funding of up to £2,000 towards initiatives which will directly benefit residents through one or more of the following activities:
- Supporting older people.
- Supporting people with disabilities.
- Helping to develop younger people.
The form is available at www.tandridge.gov.uk/communityfund and applications must be submitted by midnight on 16 November, 2018.
The grant allocations will be decided by the Tandridge Health and Wellbeing Board by the end of January 2019.
Councillor Martin Fisher, Chair of the Tandridge Health and Wellbeing Board, said: “We are delighted to offer this sum of money to support the amazing work carried out by good causes in the district. Safeguarding and improving the health and wellbeing of our residents is a key focus of our work. We are really pleased with the ongoing success of the Tandridge Together Lottery which is proving to be a really positive way to help local good causes raise funds directly and also have the opportunity to benefit from this additional Community Fund.”
