Last Chance for Local Groups to Enter Arnold Clark Community Fund Monthly Draw

28 April 2021/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Charities and local community groups across the UK still have time to enter the monthly draw for April and May and a chance to win £500.

Arnold Clark, the UK’s largest independently owned, family-run car retailer, has created the Arnold Clark Community Fund to support communities across the UK in which it operates.

The fund aims to help UK charities and local community groups continue their important work which may be at risk due to the coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic.

Grants of £500 are awarded by a monthly draw. At the end of each month, 500 applications will be granted. Applications that are unsuccessful one month will be kept in the draw for the following month.

The funding must be used for charitable or community purposes.

Registered and unregistered charities, as well as community groups including grassroots sports teams, can apply. Applications will be accepted from directors, trustees or employees of a charity or community group. Local community groups include unregistered foodbanks, community support groups, and youth clubs.

The scheme has been running since early March 2021.

The remaining deadlines are 30 April and 31 May 2021 (23:59).
