LOCAL charities, schools and good causes across Hampshire could receive a share of £10,000 thanks to the CALA Homes Community Bursary being launched this week (12th February).

Now in its second year, the scheme aims to provide support for a wide range of organisations and projects. In 2017, 118 good causes across the country received a share of more than £100,000.

John Kennedy, regional MD for CALA Homes (South Home Counties), said: “CALA has always been committed to making a positive and lasting contribution to the communities in which it builds, through an active programme of local charity donations, community support and sponsorship.

"The community bursary scheme gives us the chance to find out exactly what support is needed locally and provides the opportunity for charities and groups of all sizes to apply for funds.

“A number of charities in Hampshire benefitted from the community bursary scheme last year and we’re looking forward to hearing from more local charities this year about the great work they do and how CALA can get involved.”

You can apply for a share of the community bursary by downloading an application form from the CALA website. The closing deadline for entries is Friday March 23.
