'Support A Local Charity' in Cumbria launched!
Last year we launched a campaign called 'Support A Local Charity', asking local businesses to choose and support a local charity this year. It has become apparent to us that smaller charities, although desperately needing funds and support, often do not have the time, administration staff or experience to seek out corporate sponsors or enter awards. 'Support A Local Charity' aims to introduce Cumbrian businesses to Cumbrian charities who may be able to work together, offering not necessarily financial support but also skills share and mentoring.
Examples of how to 'Support A Local Charity' in Cumbria For instance:
Supporting a charity does not have to be about climbing mountains and raising money, it can also be about providing more practical support.
We will share details of the charities and firms we've put together and who knows, one day they could be featuring in our awards!
