Groups in Bransholme are being thanked for their contribution to community spirit.
Hull Community and Voluntary Services (Hull CVS), the organisation that administers the Bransholme Trust Fund on behalf of The Sir James Reckitt Charity and the Hull and East Riding Charitable Trust, is hosting a meet-and-greet for associations and charitable groups operating in the Bransholme area at Bodmin Road Church to say a big ‘Thank You’ for all their hard work.
Attendees will find out more about projects that have been funded through the grants that have supported a wide range of community projects this year. This year the fund has supported 17 groups with up to £500 and over the last five years has funded £33,000 of projects benefiting people in the HU7 postcode area.
Attendees will also get opportunities to network with one another and representatives from Hull CVS who can provide support around governance, volunteering, training and fundraising support. Also invited are representatives from the Bransholme Trust Panel – made up of people who live or work in the area on a voluntary basis – who support Hull CVS in making sure the projects funded are making a big impact for in the area.
Matt Wright, Head of Community Development at Hull CVS said: “The community activity delivered by charitable groups in the Bransholme area is truly inspiring and they support in making the area a fantastic place for people of all ages to live. We are delighted that the Bransholme Trust Grants have played a small part in facilitating their activity.
“We are therefore delighted we could recognise their contribution via this small Thank You event. I am sure that those attending will be excited and surprised to find out about the support on offer from the Hull CVS Membership Services Team.”
