FUNDING OPPORTUNITY Asda Foundation Launched New Grants Programme (UK)

The Asda Foundation has launched a new grant to reunite communities, celebrate togetherness, and support groups as Coronavirus restrictions begin to ease across the UK during July, August and September.

Through the Bringing Communities Back Together fund, grants of between £250 and £1,000 are available to either get activities back on track such as gardening clubs, lunch clubs and recreational activities; hold a get-together event such as a welcome back party or community celebration; or a combination of the two.:

Applications forms are available from Asda stores.

The types of groups that can apply include PTAs, local community groups, charity, Community Interest Group, sports group, not-for-profit, elderly clubs, lunch clubs, arts and crafts groups, other hobbyist clubs, council-run groups and parish councils.

Registered charities, not-for-profit organisations, CICs, and unincorporated clubs or associations have until the 16th August 2021 to submit their applications in store to an Asda Community Champion.
