Funds for local causes

CHARITIES and good causes across the UK have benefited from Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally scheme.

The latest round of Heart of the Community Awards saw 53 good causes share donations totalling £163,000, to mark Making a Difference Locally’s biggest funding giveaway to date.

The initiative invited Nisa partners to nominate a local community project to receive up to £5,000 of funding, with an emphasis on encouraging communities to spend time outdoors.

Head of charity at Nisa, Kate Carroll, said: “With many of us likely to have spent much of the last year indoors due to national restrictions, we were keen to support causes that encourage or help communities to spend time outdoors this time around and we again received hundreds of very deserving nominations.”
