Community Support Scheme Awards £11,000 to Local Groups
Charities, community organisations and sports teams in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire will benefit from a combined total of £11,000 from the latest round of Mansfield Building Society’s Community Support Scheme awards.
Established in 2008, a panel of Mansfield Building Society staff and members meets twice yearly to give financial awards of typically around £500 each to local groups and good causes. As the second round of awards this year, it means that £20,000 will have been awarded to over 36 local groups in 2015 as a direct result of the Society’s scheme.
Current beneficiaries include Matlock’s Grand Pavillion, Creswell-based Autism East Midlands, Mansfield Choral Society, Chesterfield Ladies Football Club and Long Eaton marching band Trent Valley Troopers.
Product and Marketing Manager, Mike Taylor, said:
“We’re absolutely thrilled to be supporting a wide range of communities in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire with awards that will leave a lasting legacy to the communities we serve.
For example, Autism East Midlands can now purchase a fibre optic carpet to help people affected by the condition, and Mansfield Choral Society will have new music folders to help them rehearse and perform.”
The next round of awards is due to take place in Spring 2016 and organisations working for the benefit of the community in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire are encouraged to apply.
