Dorset charity set to benefit from Hendy Foundation grant
Posted on: 03/03/2021
Charities and organisations as diverse as a community radio station in Kent, a city farm and a university research project are among the most recent successful recipients of grants from Hendy Foundation.
In Dorset, the Bournemouth BMX Club is set to expand its ladies only BMXercise classes thanks to a grant which will provide five new BMX bikes and helmets for class members to borrow.
Chair Rebecca Hendy said the foundation has supported eight individual charities or organisations in its latest round of funding and the grant window is open throughout March for the next round of applications.
Grant applications can be made by completing the Hendy Foundation grant request form.
“We have been overwhelmed with the number of applications and it was incredibly difficult for the trustees to narrow down our awards but we hope that these grants will have a positive impact on as many deserving causes as possible,” said Rebecca.
The successful recipients come from across the south coast with applications open to those helping people in the areas in which the Hendy Group operates, from Devon to Dorset and right through to Kent.
“We are delighted that Hendy Foundation has been able to provide grants for such a wide range of charities and activities and we look forward to working closely with the charities in the future,” said Rebecca. “Almost all of the current recipients have had to change they way in which they operated since the outbreak of COVID-19 and we are pleased to be able to help in any way to ensure their vital services can still help people in their local communities.”
