Local charities and community organisations are invited to apply to Bath Building Society’s Charity Awards for 2016.
Now in their tenth year, the Awards were founded to support as many local initiatives as possible from the growing number of requests received each week seeking financial support.
To be eligible to apply, charitable organisations must operate in - and deliver projects that are beneficial to the residents of - Bath and North East Somerset, Somerset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and Bristol. For 2016, the annual income threshold has been increased to £250,000 or below.
Eleven awards will be made this year:
◾One award of £1,500.
◾Three awards of £1,000.
◾Four awards of £500.
◾Three pairs of hot air balloon ride tickets (to be used by recipients for fundraising purposes).
A Charity of the Year Award will also be presented to one charity from all of those shortlisted; this charity will continue to receive funding from any fundraising completed by Bath Building Society throughout the year.
Financial awards must be used to make a significant difference to the winning organisations and their work.
The deadline for applications is 8 June 2016.
Full details can be found on the Bath Building Society website.
