Welcome

 

 

Shap Community Enterprise aims to help build a stronger local community through making grants to voluntary groups, clubs and associations in the Shap area.

 

Most of our funds are raised through our own charity shop, Second Chance. This is run entirely by local volunteers and all proceeds from sales at the shop are distributed as grants to community groups in Shap.
