We were delighted to award £22,766 of funding to support 23 grassroots community groups based across the ten boroughs of Greater Manchester.
Auto Trader and Forever Manchester recognise that great things happen in and around Greater Manchester on a daily basis and we want to shout about it!
The idea behind the Auto Trader Community Fund is to provide a positive, friendly and accessible approach to gaining much needed financial support for grassroots community organisations. This means small, community-based and locally controlled groups that manage themselves, encourage people to get involved as volunteers and who just need a bit of financial help to be able to work with their community in the way they’d like.
In this last round of the Auto Trader Community Fund, (application deadline 28th July 2023), awards of up to £1,000 were available.
The groups we were delighted to support include:
- Arts Central Youth Theatre Group
- Beech Court Tenant and Resident’s Association
- Bee Together Community Centre and Garden
- Breakdown Bolton C.I.C.
- Brighter Better Orrell
- Community Buds
- Community Works
- Denton West End Community Library (pictured)
- Droylsden Little Theatre
- Eccles RFC
- Friends of Low Hall NNR
- Friends of Standish Library
- Hindley and Hindley Green Community Action Group
- JCFT CIC
- Longsight Lodge Residents Association
- Merseybank Quids In
- Neuro SEN group
- Socio Economic Regeneration CIC
- St John’s Catholic Over 60’s
- Uganda Community in Greater Manchester (UCOMM)
- Urmston Division Girlguiding
It is always worth remembering that, just like Auto Trader, if you support Forever Manchester, you support all this.
The ability of local community groups and organisations to best help people in their community remains dependant on maintaining support for them.
If, like Auto Trader, you own or work for a company based in Greater Manchester, the chances are that 90% of your colleagues live in Greater Manchester and are part of the very communities we support.
