Hudson Hirsel LLP has set up a fund that will benefit the community of Coldstream to the value of £200,000.
The key purpose of the fund is to benefit Coldstream and its local community by supporting recreational activities such as participation in sport, promotion of the arts, culture, heritage, education, environmental improvements and initiatives that can be considered charitable or have community benefit.
The Coldstream Community Trust is a regulated charity administering the Fund on behalf of Hudson Hirsel. Grants up to £3,000 are considered and applications are invited twice a year with deadlines of 1st May and 1st November. In exceptional circumstances grants of over £3,000 may be awarded.
The aims of the Fund are to provide grant funding for community-oriented organisations, and in some cases individuals, in the area of Coldstream; the specific area being that of the remit covered by the Coldstream and District Community Council. However, organisations/individuals outside the boundary may still be successful in claiming grants if it can be proved that the grant will improve the Coldstream community. It is planned that grant funding will benefit as wide a range of people in the community as possible. Within the wider spirit of the fund there are specific aims where grant applications will be encouraged. The application form and grant applicant guidance are available below and digital PDF applications are preferred. Help and advice on the fund can be acquired by contacting the Community Centre on 01890 883332.
