Foundation Grants Tour to Take Place in Copeland

11th October 2013

Cumbria Community Foundation will be hosting their latest grants tour in Copeland. Taking place on Tuesday 15 October in Cleator Moor, the tour celebrates the Foundation and the charitable causes it supports.

The visit will explore a selection of the organisations that the Foundation has funded.  It gives an insight to where the funds have been spent and who has benefited in the community. Attendees include Donors and Trustees as well as grant panel members.   The visits will take place across four venues based in Cleator Moor. The first, Copeland Occupational and Social Centre, provides confidence building activities for people with physical disabilities ages 18-65 in a warm and friendly environment. The tour will then move on to Home to Work Ltd, a social enterprise that works to deliver key worklessness activity in underperforming /priority areas across Copeland. The third organisation is Cleator Moor bowling Club, a small community club with a membership of people ageing from 23 to 87 of varying abilities. Finally the tour will visit Phoenix Youth Project which provides community based learning, linking young people, parents and volunteers.

Andy Beeforth, Chief Executive said: “The grants tours are a fantastic way to show those who are committed to supporting the Foundation how the funding is used.  These deserving organisations will be able to show the guests their projects and how they have put the money to good use.  The tour provides a platform for groups to say thank you directly to their supporters.”

Grants tours take place across Cumbria frequently, with the next being held in South Lakes in November.  Donors trustees and members of the Foundation regularly attend the events; however they are open to anyone who shares an interest in CCF’s work and the local community.
