£50,000 grant scheme for rural communities

Date: Friday 23rd March 2018

RURAL communities throughout the UK could be eligible to receive funding via the Calor Rural Community Fund from energy provider Calor.

The fund aims to give off-grid communities the chance to gain funding for projects that will improve local life.

Last year’s winning projects included an inclusive swing for a community park, a new piano for a community choir, books for a rural school library and the installation of fibre broadband into an off-grid village.

With a total fund of £50,000 and with 21 individual prize pots up for grabs, this year’s Calor Rural Community Fund will be open for applications between 20th March and 21st May.

Entries open on the 20th March via www.calor.co.uk/communityfund.
