North Star, in partnership with our tenants’ panel North Star Link and our damp services contractor, Marsden, have allocated £3,000 to be donated to local charities or community groups operating in the following Local Authority areas:
- Redcar and Cleveland
- Durham (Teesdale Area Action Partnership area only)
Attendees of our Tenant Event on 20th October will make the final decision about who will receive donations from the fund.
We are inviting charities and community groups to apply to be considered for a share of the £3,000 donation pot.
As we cannot guarantee how much of this pot will be available to each applicant, we are not asking for specific projects. Instead we want to know about what your group does and how a donation will help you to support your local community and/or cause.
If your application is successful you will be invited to the North Star Tenant Event on 20th October. Each attendee (North Star tenants, staff and partner organisations) will be issued with tokens representing an equal share of the available pot. You will be asked to give a short presentation and provide an information stand to help attendees decide where they would like to see the money go.
The closing date for applications is: 5pm, Friday September 30th 2016.
Late applications will not be considered
Shortlisted applicants will be notified no later than Wednesday 5th October.
