Charity Fund - apply for a boost to your fundraising
Whether you're donning lycra for a bike ride, hosting a charity bake sale or completing a daredevil bungee jump, the Group might be able to help you in your fundraising efforts.
Every year Progress Housing Group helps to support our tenants, customers and employees in their fundraising endeavours, so if you are planning to do fundraising for a charity, please get in touch; we would love to help you.
Applying to the Charity Fund is really easy; you just need to complete a simple form giving your details, what you have done and how much you have raised for the charity you are supporting.
Once we receive your application, we will put it through the approval process and contact you within a few days to let you know if you have been successful.
We currently aim to 'match fund' the amount raised by individuals (budget permitting). So if you raise £300 by hosting a cake sale, the Group could match this by donating £300 to your nominated charity.
Recently, the Group has approved applications to support:
- Andy Lynam, who is repairing second-hand bikes for the women and children staying at the South Ribble and Chorley Women's Refuges
- Members of the Property Services Team who organised and took part in a charity bike ride for the Baby Beat Appeal
- Natalie Waring who organised a fundraising quiz to raise money for the National Autistic Society
