Daily Echo: Hampshire community groups celebrate grants Hampshire community groups celebrate grants

TEN community groups in Hampshire are celebrating after receiving money from the Lloyds Bank Community Fund.

More than 2.3 million votes were cast by the public for their favourite cause throughout England and Wales during September and October this year.

Grants worth £3,000 were received by Naomi House and Jacksplace and Rowans Hospital near Winchester, the 4th Southampton Boys Brigade and Wessex Cancer Trust.

Windfalls worth £300 were awarded to Riverside School and the Highland Hub in Winchester, Romsey Open Gate Stroke Club, No Limits and Sonus in Southampton.

Graham Lindsay, group director for responsible business at Lloyds Banking Group, said: “Lloyds Bank scaled up the Community Fund considerably in 2013 and in return we have had an incredible response from the public.

“We know that receiving a promotional boost and public support is as important as the financial investment and can have a sustained impact on groups’ engagement with their local community over time.

“Congratulations to every community group that took part.”
