Each year, local charities and organisations are invited to apply for funding as part of Blenheim's bursary scheme.
This year, Blenheim invited grant applications for its 2022 bursary scheme from local projects and charities that focus their work on green and sustainable projects, we were particularly looking forward to receiving applications from local groups and organisations that are doing something positive and practical to address the challenges of climate change.
Among groups receiving funds, ranging from £100 to £5,000, are the Long Hanborough Community Tree Project, the Church Hanborough Jubilee Legacy Project, Woodstock Pilates Studio, Hanborough Manor Primary School, Cherwell Theatre Company, Heyford Park Community Garden, North Leigh Preschool and Freeland Preschool.
Other organisations to receive funding for their projects are; Combe Village Hall, Oxford Earth Academy, African Families in the UK, Stonesfield Repair Café, Finstock for Nature, Tuesday Tots at Woodstock Methodist Church, Deddington Cricket Club and Combe Village Hall.
Last year, the Blenheim Bursary focused on gifting to local projects and charities that focus their work on bringing people together in the local community. A total of 20 local charities, organisations and good causes received a share of the £50,000 available.
Since its launch at the end of 2018, the Blenheim Bursary has distributed in excess of £150,000 to more than 50 different organisations across the local communities.
The bursary is available to all local charities and organisations and is part of our ongoing commitment to more than double our charitable contributions to our local community within 10 years.
