Another chance to grab a grant
Over the last six years we have donated over £100,000 to local causes supporting projects to help communities thrive and we’re delighted that ‘Grants for Good’ is back again this year.
Our 2017 scheme, which launches on Monday 3rd April, offers grants of up to £5,000 and aims to focus on groups involved in education, financial security, tackling homelessness and supporting employability.
In 2016 The Nottingham awarded 16 Grants for Good, benefitting over 1,000 people in our local communities. Projects included life skills courses, support with job applications and skills for work courses and a homework hub for children from deprived areas.
David Marlow, Chief Executive said: “For over 165 years the vision of The Nottingham has been to help local communities prosper and our Doing Good Together project reflects this.
“I am delighted that we are able to support so many local groups that make a real difference to their communities. Hearing about their work is such an inspiration.”
This year we are also teaming up with Global Radio for a three week promotional campaign on Capital East Midlands Breakfast show with Dino and Pete and in a further 9 counties through digital streaming. Last week three of our awardees from 2016 joined us in the studio to help record our adverts. Listen out from the 24th April to hear how they got on.
