We've been nominated for an award!
We're so pleased to announce that the Community Foundation for Lancashire is a "Fundraising Campaign" finalist at the 2017 North West Charity Awards.
Our nomination follows our fundraising work for our Lancashire Flood Recovery Appeal
, following the devastation Storms Desmond and Eva wreaked on our county in late 2015.
Our approach to fundraising for the appeal was perfectly timed to meet the challenges that the floods brought with them. The fundraising campaign was managed in house by our expert staff, working with our partners to raise vital funds to distribute to our community.
We kick-started the appeal with a £5,000 donation from our own Lancashire Community Investment Fund and Lancaster City Council agreed to donate to the appeal.
