Helping Hands

About Helping Hands scheme

We have been supporting local charities and community groups through our Helping Hands scheme for over 20 years. It helps organisations and groups to fund activity that they would otherwise be unable to do. 

Last year, £18,100 was donated to 31 organisations. 

Applications for this year's fund are now closed.  


Last year’s scheme (2016)

Last year, we received over 120 applications and it was extremely difficult to choose where the money should go. We review each application to make sure smaller charities and causes aren’t overlooked.
