Wow, what an absolutely fantastic achievement for small community like ours. We could not have done this without the continued kind donations from the community and the very hard work of our fantastic & dedicated volunteers. We know that the money awarded so far will, in some large or small way, have benefitted most of the residents within our community. Lets push on for £175K! Thanks again everyone.
The next meeting will be on 20th February 2024
Most of our funds are raised through our own charity shop, Second Chance and the Monday lunches in the Memorial Hall. This is run entirely by local volunteers and all proceeds from sales at the shop are distributed as grants to community groups in Shap.
We have now awarded our latest set of grants to local Shap community groups!! See our Previous Grants page for details. Thats a total of £152,377.49 of grants awarded so far. Thanks to all our customers, to everyone who has donated goods to the shop and a special thanks to all our hard working volunteers!
