Yorkshire Bank’s community awards offer £75,000

Howard Lake | 12 January 2015 | News

Yorkshire Bank is inviting applications from charities and not-for-profit organisations in England for its annual Spirit of the Community Awards. These recognise organisations that are “going the extra mile”.
There are three categories:
1. financial education
2. employability
3. environment
Entrants need to be able to demonstrate their support for the local community. This could involve training people for the workplace, protecting the environment or promoting access to financial education.

How much is on offer?

Each of the three categories will have an overall winner which will receive £10,000, together with three highly commended organisations that will each receive £5,000.

Same sums from Clydesdale Bank

It gets better. Yorkshire Bank’s sister organisation, Clydesdale Bank, will also award £75,000 to local organisations as part of the programme.
The total funds available are therefore £150,000.
The closing date for applications to the Yorkshire and Clydesdale Bank Foundation’s Spirit of the Community Awards is Friday 6 March 2015. The winners will be announced in summer 2015.
