Organisations and community groups in Hereford are being encouraged to apply for a grant of up to £2,200 from the Prime Foundation.
Set up in 2007, the Foundation invests in communities where Prime has built a new facility. When Prime completes a project a proportion of its profits is donated to the Foundation, which then distributes the money as grants to community projects.
Up to £2,200 of funding is available following the development of the new Station Medical Centre in Hereford which opened in Autumn 2020. The Prime Foundation is inviting good causes to apply for funding that match one or more of its aims: advancing education outside the classroom, promoting good physical and mental health and/or furthering the enhancement of social wellbeing through recreation.
In 2018, the Foundation funded two projects in Hereford including a fun and educational garden space for children at Saxon Hall Community Centre and group support events at Newtown Farm Community Association to promote healthy eating.
Hannah Cashmore at the Prime Foundation said: “As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the past year has been incredibly challenging for many charities, with some having faced financial difficulties.
“We’re delighted to have opened the funding application process to good causes in Hereford and are looking to hear from projects that have a plan in place to improve quality of life for the community but need financial support to make it happen.”
