Local charities and voluntary organisations have until 5pm on Friday (24 November) to apply for a portion of the funds from next year’s Saffery Rotary Walk.
Submissions for projects of all sizes will be considered and can be made by any locally registered charity or not for profit organisation in need of financial support for a specific initiative. Applications for funds to cover running costs will not be considered.
This year’s Saffery Rotary Walk, sponsored by Saffery Champness, supported a record 28 local community projects that received funding from the £85,430 raised.
Simon Milsted, chair of the walk’s organising committee, said: “We are really keen for any locally-registered charity or organisation to apply to receive funds from the 2018 walk so that we can help make a huge difference to a host of very worthy causes.
“A range of applications have been submitted so far but we are looking to support as many local charitable projects as possible to spur on our walkers’ fundraising efforts.”
Application forms can be downloaded online from the website: www.safferyrotarywalk.com and submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Forms can also be collected from and submitted to Saffery Champness’ office at La Tonnelle House, Les Banques, St Sampson’s. Applications must be received no later than 5pm on Friday 24 November 2017.
Next year’s Saffery Rotary Walk will take place on Saturday 9 June, 2018.
Online walker registration for the 2018 walk will soon be open, and walkers can find out more online at www.safferyrotarywalk.com
