As part of the Helping Britain Prosper Plan nominations for the Lloyds bank community fund will open today. For the first time, Lloyd’s customers as well as the wider public will be able to nominate local good causes to invite them to apply to Community Fund this year.
Around 1,400 good causes in 350 communities across England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands are set to benefit from Community Fund this year with grants of up to £3,000, supporting projects and services that make a positive difference to local communities. Over 2.3 million votes were cast for the 2013 Community Fund with 380,000 people benefitting from an award.
Helen is encouraging constituents to nominate a local good cause and take part in this year’s Community Fund programme. Nominations can be made online at www.lloydsbank.com/communityfund. Once nominated, each group will be invited to directly apply to Community Fund online.
Nominations will close on 30 April 2014, with applications remaining open until 9 May 2014.
