Help to fund charities 

11/02/10

You can help to raise money for local charities with a wealth of fund raising ideas in a new pack.

The Big Bolton Fund has launched its first ever fundraising pack and an exciting new calendar of events to encourage the community to get involved in supporting local charities.

The fund provides grants for community and voluntary groups in Bolton which help small community groups pay for projects that make a difference to the lives of local people. The money comes from donations from individuals and businesses, which are matched by the government, and are invested in a fund which then pays out grants to local groups.

It is managed by Bolton Community and Voluntary Services and supported by the council and the events calendar has something for everyone from the Mayor’s Mile to the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge.
