Furness charities to bid for £20k funding pot
Last updated at 11:32, Monday, 28 July 2014
FURNESS charities are being given the chance to apply for a share of £20,000 made up from donations by shipyard employees.
Around £400,000 has been donated through the BAE Systems Submarines Give As You Earn scheme over the past 20 years. Many past recipients have been regular beneficiaries – such as St Mary’s Hospice in Ulverston, the Hospital Equipment Fund for Furness (HEFF), Lindale-based Kidsafe UK and Ulverston Inshore Rescue.
The application process for 2014 is now open and closes on September 30. All applications from registered charities based in Furness must include the registered charity number.
Joe Sides, chairman of the GAYE committee, said: “BAE Systems continues to assist more charities from the Furness peninsula than ever before through the scheme.
“Our focus is, and always has been, to ensure the money we donate is spent on a hard requirement that enhances the current provision that a charity provides. We are unable to supplement general running costs but we respectfully ask for charities to share with us the amount they are looking to secure, along with their aspirations on how they would use the donation.”
Laura Lake, submarines corporate responsibility advisor added: “Whilst our community investment activity remains focussed on supporting heritage projects, the armed forces and educational activities, employee contributions through GAYE give us the flexibility to support registered charities within the local area.”
Applications should be emailed to email@example.com or sent via post to: Rebekah Caine, BAE Systems, Successor Projects Desk 179, Talent Office, Ground Floor, Building A45, Barrow-in-Furness, LA14 1AF.
