Liverpool John Lennon Airport is to offer grants worth up to £3,000 to local groups and organisations as it launches a new Community Fund. Tony McDonough reports
Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) has launched the Liverpool Airport Community Fund to support local groups and organisations.
Grants up to a maximum of £3,000 will be available for projects that meet certain criteria to bring a range of benefits for local communities
These include enhancing the local environment, educational projects, community improvement projects and various sustainability initiatives.
Applications to the fund will be considered by a Community Fund management group, which will include representation by local community representatives. It will meet twice a year to evaluate each application carefully.
Grants will be prioritised for projects that benefit communities in Eastham, Garston, Hale, Halebank, Ditton, Halewood, Hunts Cross, Runcorn and Speke.
Carol Dutton, LJLA’s HR and community director, said “This is the first time that we have introduced such a fund that will hopefully help to make a difference for some local good causes. We hope to grow the scheme bringing wider benefits in the future.
“We know that so much goes on locally by community groups and volunteers, perhaps helping friends and neighbours of all ages who may be less fortunate and creating environments for local communities to enjoy.
“We’ll be delighted if we can help such groups by providing some much needed financial support to help them continue the fantastic work they do.”
