Local organisations are invited to apply to the Hall and Woodhouse Community Chest for funding.
The Blandford-based brewer has pledged a total of £50,000 to worthy causes.
Local voluntary organisations in regions where Hall & Woodhouse operate have the opportunity to apply online for grants from £400 to £4,000.
Mark Woodhouse, family director of Hall & Woodhouse, explained, “The Community Chest was originally set up almost 20 years ago to support and strengthen local communities which our pubs are a focal part of.
“Today we are proud to be able to support those voluntary organisations that are helping their communities at such a difficult time. We remain dedicated to the Community Chest, despite the challenges our sector has faced, and are keen to hear from those in need. The past year has been so turbulent for many charities and has greatly impacted communities in so many ways. We have heard first-hand just how essential our support is for the survival of the causes that that we have helped to date.”
A Community Chest grant can go towards improving a variety of different aspects of the local area such as by helping the youth, elderly, disabled, arts, environment and more.
Since 2002, the Hall & Woodhouse Community Chest has donated over £650,000 to more than 800 causes across the south of England and is backed by the Dorset and Sussex Community Foundations.
Applicants have until Friday, 7 May to submit their grant requests. Application forms can be downloaded via www.hall-woodhouse.co.uk/community-chest and then emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration.
Successful grant beneficiaries will be notified of the outcome of their application in September with an awards event in October 2021.
