Charity supporters invited to nominate good causes for Lloyds Bank’s Community Fund

Howard Lake | 3 April 2014 | News

Members of the public can now nominate their favourite local group and charity for a Lloyds Bank Community Fund 2014 award.
Until now, only Lloyds Bank staff have been able to put forward nominations for groups to receive an award. Now, anyone can.
The Lloyds Bank Community Fund helps local people across England, Wales and Northern Ireland to have a positive impact at the hearts of their communities by giving grants to local good causes. Around 1,400 community groups in around 350 communities will be shortlisted for the public vote due to take place later this year. The shortlisted community groups will be in with a chance of receiving a £3,000, £2,000, £1,000 or £500 Community Fund award.

Wheels for Wellbeing

Wheels for Wellbeing was one of last year’s beneficiary organisations. Isabelle Clement, Director, Wheels for Wellbeing, joined Lloyds Bank staff at the Streatham London branch to thank them and the public for voting for them to receive £3,000. She encouraged other people to nominate their favourite local charity.

Launch of Lloyds Bank Community Fund 2014

Shani Ennis and Isabelle Clement from Wheels for Wellbeing launch the Lloyds Bank Community Fund 2014 alongside bank colleagues from their local Lloyds Bank branch in Streatham.

She said:

“As a small, local charity finding funding can be difficult and time-consuming. With the Lloyds Bank Community Fund it was really easy as it was just a case of being nominated and then encouraging people to vote for us. We are spending our award on enabling disabled children to cycle. Using our trikes, handbikes, quads and tandems they are discovering cycling, developing their skills and improving their health and wellbeing.
“We’d encourage anyone who knows of, or is involved with, a local good cause to champion them and nominate them for the Community Fund 2014.”

Nominate online

Nominations for the Community Fund 2014 can be made online until 30 April 2014.
Nominated community groups are then invited to accept their nomination and apply online to the Community Fund. Applications will remain open until 9 May 2014.
Lloyds Bank staff will then assess and shortlist confirmed applications into four groups per community. These shortlisted groups will then be made available for the public vote in September 2014.
