Still time to make nominations for Burbage Parish Lands Charity grants

Still time to make nominations for Burbage Parish Lands Charity grants

Do you know of an organisation or individual in the Parish of Burbage who would benefit from a financial contribution this Christmas?

Each year, Burbage Parish Lands Charity makes grants to individuals and organisations within the Parish and the Charity has now opened nominations for this year's grants, which are awarded in December.

For several years grants have benefited members of the local community. At Christmas 2020, we were able to donate a total of £2,075 to a number of groups and individuals across the Parish of Burbage although one group returned their grant as they were unable to implement their proposed project due to Covid.

This year, the Trustees are particularly keen to hear from individuals or families that have experienced a negative financial impact due the Coronavirus pandemic.

Nominations can be from individuals, families or community groups. You can self-nominate, nominate someone else who you think would benefit, or nominate a community group that you are associated with. Please ask for permission before nominating someone.

All nominations are treated confidentially.

Nominations should be sent either by email to grdavis@ntlworld.com or by post to: The Secretary, Burbage Parish Lands Charity, c/o 14 Norfolk Close, Burbage, LE10 2LE.

Please briefly include in your nomination:

  • Name of the individual or organisation (to whom the cheque should be payable)
  • An overview of why you are making the nomination;
  • What the grant will be used for; and
  • When the nominees hope to achieve their desired outcome.

If you are nominating a group, please also include:

  • What efforts have been made by the organisation to raise their own funds?

Nominations should be made by 31st October 2021.

Successful nominees will receive their award at our presentation evening on Tuesday 7th December from 7pm to 8pm in the 2nd hall, (Coronavirus permitting) at Burbage Millennium Hall, or through the post depending on individual circumstances.

Burbage Parish Land Charity is a registered charity and terms and conditions apply. Please ask the person/organisation's permission before nominating them
