July’s Fund – Grants for Children

So keep coming back to the website and check our latest news and updates – you don’t want to miss out. Of course, if you want a more detailed funding service– please get in touch with us and we will see how we can help you: info@funmefit.com.

 

JULY’S FUND SPOTLIGHT

Funder: Henry Smith Charity

Fund title: Holiday grants for children

Open: November 2014 to fund holidays in 2015.

For this particular fund you will need to identify that the children attending such a recreational holiday are from a deprived area, have a disability or are experiencing disadvantage.

The funder requires you to make a strong case for why your application should be considered. Consider using information such as the Office for National Statistics website at http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/taxonomy/index.html?nscl=Communities where you can get detailed information about your neighbourhood.

You can apply for between £500 and £2500, with normally two thirds of the total holiday funded if you are successful – as the Henry Smith Charity like to see that you have raised funding elsewhere too.

Schools, youth groups, not for profit organisations and charities are all eligible to apply. This is one particular fund we have chosen that gives you plenty of time to get used to applying for funding and plan a long time before you intend to make your trip.

So use the help on the FunMeFit website and if you have an idea for a trip that fits the criteria then why not give it a go. Imagine how thrilled you will be if you get the funding and the children who ultimately benefit get to go somewhere they have never been before.

Basketball Anyone? It’s for Charity

May 15, 2013 in News

Our Member Katie Robson writes:

“The Rise Up Charity Basketball Tournament is back for a second year and this time it’s 3v3. Last year’s tournament saw Team BC battle with twelve other teams to lift the trophy and the event raised £900 in aid of St. Luke’s Hospice and Weston Park Cancer Hospital.

This year’s tournament will be on Sunday 2 June at Goals (All Saints School Basketball Courts). There will be an Under 18s tournament from 11am-1pm followed by an open tournament from 1-6pm. Both tournaments are mixed and open to all abilities, the emphasis is on fun and raising money for St. Luke’s.

St. Luke’s cares for people throughout Sheffield who have incurable illnesses by aiming to control their symptoms, alleviate pain and give them the best quality of life – all free of charge. To do this means that in this financial year alone they will need to raise more than £4.5 million of the £7.5 million total income required.

The cost to play in the tournament is £20 per team and all proceeds will be donated to St. Luke’s Hospice. A team must consist of four players, if you need help finding a team the Rise Up Facebook group might be helpful. Entry for spectators is free of charge but donations to St. Luke’s will be gratefully received.

To enter please email Katie Robson at riseupcharity-bball@yahoo.co.uk with a team name and the names of four team members. The deadline for entries is midnight on Monday 27 May though entry will close before this date if the maximum number of teams has been reached.

Entry fees must be paid on the day but other donations would be gratefully received at http://www.justgiving.com/charitybball

Date and time:

Sunday 2 June 2013. Under 18s tournament from 11am-1pm. Open tournament 1pm-6pm.

Venue:

Goals (All Saints School Basketball Courts),

95 Norfolk Park Road,

Sheffield,

S2 2RU”

We’re looking to put a team together for this. Last year we raised over £90 for this event so if you’d like to be part of the team, let us know info@funmefit.com! You don’t have to be a Basketball pro – just come and have some fun!
