Peaslake Village Community Fund

The Peaslake Village Community Fund is a charitable fund specifically for the benefit of Peaslake and its residents established with a capital sum from a bequest to the Peaslake Community Council by Miss Jean Brodie.

The Fund enables people who love Peaslake to donate money for the exclusive benefit of the town and its people. With your help we can help build a stronger community by supporting local causes that can make impact and that will empower Peaslake to help itself now and in the future.

Each year the fund awards a grant to support a Christmas lunch for the elderly of the village of Peaslake, known as the Jean Brodie Memorial Lunch.


Why Support the Peaslake Community Fund?

As a village our needs are very specific, and local people are often faced with reduced access to facilities and funding. Our dedicated panel of local residents award grants to:

  • Help older or disadvantaged residents combat isolation and stay happy, healthy and included
  • Increase facilities, training, skills and experience for young people
  • Support village activities, services and community focal points such as the Village Hall
  • Fund projects that improve and preserve the village heritage, culture and environment

How to give

This is a long-term fund that people can either donate to now, or leave a legacy to in the future. Donations can be made at any level, either as one-off donations or spread over a period of time. They can be donated as gifts of cash, legacies, shares, property or land.

To donate, please contact us for more information.

Don’t forget Gift Aid! Using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, the Peaslake Community Fund will receive an extra 25p from HM Revenue & Customs, helping your donation go further.

Apply for funding

Applying for funding is easy. Simply fill out a quick Expression of Interest Form (EOI) to start the application process.

Tell us what you want to do, and how much you would like to apply for. The EOI is designed to save you time and provide us with a little more information about your funding needs prior to making a full application.

The grants team will then review your EOI against our fund criteria and advise you if we can invite you forward to make a full application.
