Bishop of Loughborough Praises Work of Leicestershire & Rutland Community Foundation

During this unsettling time, the Leicestershire & Rutland Community Foundation report that emergency grants have been given to charities that work in our area to help those that are isolated, need that extra bit of help, or try to bring communities together whilst we’re all so separated. An amazing 122 grants have been given to charities to date, some of whom would have struggled to survive without them, totalling £521,443.50.

Bishop Guli Francis-Dehqani of Loughborough, an honorary Vice President, has been impressed on the progress they are making, commenting “As honorary Vice President of the Leicestershire and Rutland Community Foundation, I’m delighted to see the range of projects and ventures they are working to support, and am very pleased to be associated with the Foundation’s work. In these difficult and uncertain times their support for groups trying to make a difference in our communities is absolutely vital.”

The organisations who have received these donations in the Leicestershire and Rutland area have been given a lifeline that allows them to continue to provide assistance to those that need it most in this difficult time.

If you are a charity or small business that needs that extra support, applications are still open. The link will take you to their requirements for those applying to the grant.
