At our Community Chest Panel meeting in September, we considered many applications for funding.

From the completed Simple Five Minute Application Forms, the criteria we look for from applicants are that they can demonstrate how our funding will support the BBL Area.

The applications we agreed to fund this quarter are:

Boston & South Holland Talking Newspaper – £500

Covering expenses like travelling, running costs and weekly newspapers will help keep their service active.

LIVES – £1500

To recruit, train and equip all of the locally based Emergency Responders. The funding will support LIVES in maintaining their Boston Emergency Responder service.

Nacro Education – £1500

To purchase five massage beds and equipment for students to use for training and at sporting events for Pre and Post Sports Massage Therapy.

Boston Lithuanian Communitye – £1500

This funding will be used to help hire the Gliderdrome for their Christmas event along with the equipment, microphones, lights, speakers, snow effects and a technician.

We are really proud to have supported these groups and look forward to more applications at our September panel meeting. –
