Last chance to get your bid in for a £1,000 grant from your local Asda store. Every Asda store in the country has a Community Champion who is a bowling club's gateway into bidding for support from the superstore's funding schemes.
The deadline for bids to be submitted is next Sunday (31 October). It is a straight- forward easy process to submit a bid and we have previously reported on how a Leeds area bowling club received £1,000 to pay for 25 bespoke polo shirts and 25 waterproof jackets for their bowlers.
Grants from £250 to £1,000 from the scheme are now open for bids to support the community's return to normality after the pandemic.
Asda Foundation (UK)
Name of Fund: Bringing Communities Back Together Fund - Phase 2
The Asda Foundation has launched phase 2 of its Bringing Communities Back Together Fund. The fund aims to reunite communities, celebrate togetherness, and support groups as Coronavirus restrictions begin to ease across the UK.
Through the Bringing Communities Back Together fund, grants of between £250 and £1,000 are available to either get activities back on track such as gardening clubs, lunch clubs and recreational activities; or hold a get-together event such as a welcome back party or community celebration; or a combination of the two.
The types of groups that can apply include PTAs, local community groups, charity, Community Interest Group, sports groups, not-for-profit, elderly clubs, lunch clubs, arts and crafts groups, other hobbyist clubs, etc. Applications forms are available from Asda stores and applicants have until the 1st November 2021 to submit their applications in-store to an Asda Community Champion.
