2014 Grassroots Giving Winners

Our Grassroots Giving initiative in 2014 received hundreds of applications from community groups, clubs and organisations from all over the UK. In order to make this process as fair as possible, we asked the public to vote on who they believed should be awarded the pots of £500 funding. We had an incredible 27,862 votes cast amongst the shortlisted groups and the competition was really tough.

Thanks to everyone who entered, and everyone who voted - this has been an incredible few months of discovering and sharing some amazing stories. 

Sadly we were unable to support everyone, however we continue to have a series of free resources on our website; www.skiptongrg.co.uk and these are full of top tips and expert advice to help your group continue to grow and succeed. Also don’t forget to join us at twitter.com/SkiptonBS_GRG or Facebook.com/skiptonbs for regular updates on how Grassroots Giving is doing in 2014 and beyond.
