Boost for community groups in the borough
More than 250 people attended a new event this week which was organised to help community groups and charities get access to funding.
Organised by the Walcot Foundation and Lambeth Council, the Lambeth Funders’ Fair was held at the Kia Oval in Kennington on Wednesday, May 10.
Daniel Chapman, Grants manager for the Walcot Foundation, said: “It was fantastic to be able to provide an opportunity for so many Lambeth community groups to meet up with funders face to face.
“I think the large number of people at the event shows both the breadth of community action in Lambeth and also high level of demand for funding in the borough, especially in a time of growing need.”
The event also featured a Crowdfunders’ Campaign master classes to see help community groups and charities in the borough better understand digital fundraising.
The Walcot Foundation, based in Kennington, are an independent grant-making foundation and charity, and have been offering grants in Lambeth since 1667.
