The last 18 months have been incredibly challenging for many people in the UK.
Throughout this time, the Asda Foundation and Community Champions have worked with dedication and perseverance to support local people and their communities. Now, as we move into the summer months and social distancing restrictions are due to ease, we are pleased to introduce a new grant which will be targeted at reuniting communities, celebrating togetherness, and supporting groups as they resume their activities in person again.
The ‘Bringing Communities Back Together’ grant will provide financial aid to local groups in two phases. Phase 1 July – September and phase 2 October – December; either through a celebration event (following social distancing guidelines) or by getting their activities and services back on track. Groups who cannot physically be back together, but whose activities are still open and available to the community, may also be included in this award. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP to express an interest.
