Market Harborough Building Society is searching for projects to support through its charitable foundation.

The foundation was created in 1999 to support groups and communities in the harborough area.

This year seven grants totalling more than £9,000 have been handed out to help an array of worthy causes including Welford Pre-school, Houghton Village Hall, the HCYC (Harborough District Children and Young people’s Charity) and Tilton Produce Show.

Grants from the Foundation have helped with the purchase of a community defibrillator, funding towards a Chill-out Bus, replacement chairs and entrance ramp, as well as provide funds towards building improvements.

The next Committee meeting is taking place Monday, September 21. Applications received before this date will be considered at that meeting.
