|Murray Is Out But Wimbledon Offers Grants
The Wimbledon Foundation sets up a new fund to benefit the community
Grants of up to £5,000 will be available to charities and community organisations across Wandsworth & Merton thanks to the Wimbledon Foundation Community Fund, a new initiative from the Wimbledon Foundation, the charitable arm of the All England Lawn Tennis Club, in conjunction with The London Community Foundation.
The aim of the fund, which will be looking to distribute up to £100,000 in the coming year, is to benefit the community and provide support for local organisations to meet social needs in the two neighbouring boroughs of Merton and Wandsworth.
Organisations will be able to apply for funding to support work that focuses on meeting local needs through addressing one or more of the following themes:
* Projects which improve mental and physical health and well-being
* BAME (Black and Minority Ethnic) groups
