Each year we look to support those charities and not for profit organisations which make such a difference in our communities either through providing services in kind or as direct donations.
This year we are please to be able to announce that we have been fortunate enough to be able to give away £7,880 which represents 10% of our profits from the financial year 2016/17.
For many years we have supported Homestart Royston and South Cambs who help families with children age 9 and under cope with post natal depression, illness, isolation, bereavement, disability, domestic abuse and much more, offering regular support and practical help to alleviate stress with a view to preventing family crisis and breakdown. We are pleased to be able to continue this support with a gift of £5,000.
In addition we have sponsored Buntingford Town Football Club for the last few years. This organisation, run wholly by volunteers, looks to promote football within Buntingford and currently runs three teams - 2 County League teams and a Veterans side. BTFC are looking to establish a women's football team for the 2018/19 season and we are pleased to be able to give them £2,880 which, they hope, will allow them to leverage further funding and support in pursuit of this aim.
