2017 Grassroots Giving Winners


Grassroots Giving 2017: Winners announced

This year our 2017 Grassroots Giving programme has seen a wide variety of community groups, who have dedicated their time to supporting their local communities. From juggling groups to memory cafes, we received applications - all for wonderful and worthwhile causes that have made a positive impact to their community. In order to ensure that the voting was as fair as possible, we asked the public to vote on which groups and clubs deserved to win £500. And they didn't let us down with a record breaking 40,000 votes being cast, both online and in our branches.

A big thank you to everyone who entered and voted. We are always inspired by the stories we read and the difference that these groups and clubs are making in their communities. We will contact all the winners directly this week.

We can now proudly announce the 164 community groups and clubs that have won a pot of money from our 2017 Grassroots Giving programme.

We are sorry that we can’t support every community group or club that applied to Grassroots Giving. However, we do have a series of free resources which are hosted on this website. These are full of top tips and expert advice to help your group grow and succeed.
