Galaxy Hot Chocolate Fund OPEN!
Applications are currently being invited from small local charities and community groups who need a little helping hand towards their charitable aims.
This winter the Galaxy Hot Chocolate Fund will be giving away five sets of £300 each week for 16 weeks, representing 80 awards worth a total of £24,000.
Local charities, community groups and individuals can apply for an award to help support sporting or leisure activities or hobbies that are beneficial to their community.
Each week, four of the five available awards will be selected by a panel of judges who will judge each entry and use of the award based on:
o The extent to which the proposed initiative will help the local community in question.
o The extent of the proposed initiative's reach.
o The perceived local need for such hobbies, sporting or leisure activities.
The remaining (5th) award will go to the project that has received the most public votes on the Galaxy Hot Chocolate website.
Applications for the awards are quick and easy:
o Interested applicants should fill in the online form and explain, in 200 words or less, what their organisation does and why the £300 grant would be influential in the implementation of their project.
o Unsuccessful entries will automatically be carried forward to the following week, although any public votes already secured will be discarded and voting will begin again for all projects.
The scheme will run until 22 February 2015, with the final deadline for applications being 11.59pm that evening.
