Freebridge are once again delighted to have agreed to provide £6,000 in funding through the Freebridge Community Fund, to ten local groups who are making a positive difference to residents and the communities they live in across West Norfolk.
The annually available funding supports community groups through awards of up to £1000 for projects that have a positive impact within West Norfolk that either promote health and wellbeing, the environment, support residents in some way, or bring communities together.
A judging panel of Freebridge tenants and employees met last week to look over the applications that had come in over the last couple of months, and were pleased to confirm the following groups were successful in their bids:
Sophie Bates, Freebridge's Director of Customer & Communities said: “The Freebridge Community Fund is a fantastic opportunity for us to help support some of the brilliant charities and community groups that work in the area, who in turn support our customers and the wider West Norfolk.
“Our vision at Freebridge is to support a better West Norfolk and it's clear to see that the various projects that the Fund will be helping this year do just that.
"Freebridge has always been a community minded landlord aspiring to do more than just provide homes, and one of the key objectives in our new five-year strategy is to create "homes, communities and local spaces to be proud of".
"The Community Fund plays an important part in helping us work towards this objective and we're delighted to be supporting the various projects and activities being run across the borough.”
Norfolk Community Foundation manages the fund on Freebridge’s behalf. Any community or voluntary group wishing to find out more about the Freebridge Community Fund can visit www.norfolkfoundation.com/Freebridge-Community-Housing-Fund telephone 01603 623958 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
