Redditch's first funding fair to take place this month
8:30am Monday 14th October 2013 in News
REDDITCH MP Karen Lumley has officially launched Redditch’s first ever funding fair.
The fair is aimed at allowing local charitable organisations to develop an understanding of how to successfully apply for local funding and grant opportunities.
The fair will be attended by more than 50 charitable, sports, community and voluntary organisations from Redditch and will include presentations from five leading grant bodies that help support charities and local community organisations.
These include the Arts Council, Big Lottery Fund, Barclays Bank, Sport England and Worcestershire County Sports Partnership.
The fair will take place at the Abbey Hotel in Redditch on Thursday, October 24.
Mrs Lumley said: “From my experience, there is a general lack of awareness about how those people who do such excellent work in our communities can access funding provided by leading grant giving organisations.
“In my role as an MP, I understand this and realised that by bringing the two together, both parties can benefit, with the final result being more funding provided to organisations who do such great work in Redditch.”
