The latest from The OneFamily Foundation

The OneFamily Foundation team have been busy working with our customers to help them support causes close to their heart. A total of nearly £180,000 was allocated to projects up and down the country in the second round of community awards for 2015.

Four OneFamily customers secured awards of up to £25k for their chosen community projects, following the nomination and voting. We celebrated with them at dedicated winner events throughout November.

Our community award winners were in four categories; Schools, Youth and affiliated organisations, Sports and social groups and Health, Disability and social care.

Riverside Primary School was granted £25k to save their swimming pool, which had fallen into disrepair.

West Fife Fencing club now have the money for dedicated premises for use by its members as well as the wider community.

Sand, Sun and Special Needs wanted to raise enough money to purchase a specially adapted caravan in Skegness, so that families with disabled children can benefit from free holiday accommodation.

Newquay Rowing Club

Finally, an impressive response by Newquay Rowing Club’s members and supporters helped them secure a £25k award to equip its new community facilities.

A further 16 awards of £5k were distributed to community projects that were nominated by OneFamily customers and went on to secure the most votes.
