A community fund has been launched by Lakeland Ltd for charitable and not-for-profit organisations that improve the health and wellbeing of local people, and projects that protect the environment.
The creation of the myLakeland Fund, in partnership with Cumbria Community Foundation, allows Lakeland to expand its reach into local communities and show its gratitude and ongoing support for the Cumbrian community where the business was founded more than 50 years ago.
Priority will be given to community-led projects in or around Windermere, Kendal and South Lakeland, those that support young people, and organisations that have minimal opportunity for raising funds or are helping to address new or emerging needs.
Cumbria Community Foundation has been building philanthropic support for communities and grassroots groups for 22 years. In that time, working with individual donors and businesses, it has invested more than £56 million into local communities.
A total of £50,000 is available from the fund and grants will be in the region of £5,000 to £15,000.
Multi-year funding may be considered but must be discussed in the first instance with the Grants & Programmes Officer.
