Community Grant Scheme awards 2023
Six valued organisations are the beneficiaries of the Rotary Club of Haworth & Worth Valley’s second Community Grant Scheme awards.
The Rotarians started their Community Grant Scheme through their Charitable Trust following the Covid-19 pandemic when they made £2,000 available for grants to support smaller community organisations who were struggling to survive.
For the second time the Rotary Club has moved to back community organisations in and around the Keighley and the Worth Valley region with a round of small grants. And for these latest awards the Rotarians have increased the amount of money available by 25 percent to £2,550. Some of the additional funds were generated thanks to the people who participated in the club’s first-ever Santa Fun Run in 2022.
For the 2023 award the following organisations have been given grants by the Rotary Club’s Charitable Trust: –
- Keighley and District Talking Newspaper £500
- Haworth Central Park Bowling Club £300
- Stitch4CharityWY £500
- Lees cum Cross Roads Village Association £250
- Haworth Riding for the Disabled £500
- Oxenhope CofE Primary School £500
Past-President Nicholas Oughtibridge, chairman of the Rotary Club’s Charitable Trust, said: “We’re delighted to be in a position to offer these grants to other organisations who are so important to our community.
“Our motto as Rotarians is ’Service above Self’ and we see this Community Grant Scheme as an important component of our club’s service to other organisations within the Worth Valley and surrounding areas.”
An official presentation evening is planned for the organisations who have received a grant at the club’s headquarters, Newsholme Manor on Tuesday, June 6th.
