The Horsleys Community Fund is a significant and exciting local initiative specifically for the benefit of the Horsleys and its residents. The Fund enables people who love the Horsleys to donate money for the exclusive benefit of the villages and their people.
With your help we can help build a stronger community by supporting local causes that can make impact and that will empower the Horsleys to help itself both now and in the future.
“Now in our 10th year, the Horsleys Community Fund has been able to award 60 grants – in total more than £47,000. This is equivalent to a third of the donations that we have received and we still have investments of nearly £245,000 which generates the interest used for grant making in perpetuity.
We provide a conduit between local people who want to give and local causes that need help; through investing in the Horsleys Community Fund we can enhance the work of the network of Horsley groups and volunteers who provide services that local government are increasingly unable to meet. Our grants support:
– Young people through sporting and activity groups, including facilities for schools and playgroups
– Community and environmental projects
– Older residents by helping to reduce social isolation
– Families and individuals in need
If you or anyone you know could benefit from our support please do get in contact.
We get a continuous stream of requests which we hope to be able to continue to meet with the help of our supporters – please get in touch! Call Clare Mathias on 01483 281755, or email Claritaclare@gmail.com.”
