Update: Applications now closed. The last date for receipt of Spring Bids applications was 24th March

The return of Horbury Show and Santa’s Sleigh in 2022 were very well supported by the community and consequently, Horbury and Ossett Phoenix Rotary Club has not only been able to continue our support of local foodbanks and other good causes, but we are now making a further £8000 from our Charitable Trust Fund available for bids for funding.   Bids can be made by community, charitable, youth, and sporting organisations as well as by individuals within Horbury, Ossett and surrounding areas. Payments from the fund will be limited to £400 per applicant, unless there are exceptional circumstances when a larger amount will be considered and can include the £400 amount as part of a bigger fund-raising effort by the bidder.

In previous years awards have been made to a wide variety of good causes across the district, including Wakefield Metropolitan District and bordering areas of South Kirklees. They have included kit for youth sports teams, musical instruments for bands, support groups for the elderly, school facilities, equipment for brownie packs, youth clubs and equipment for individuals with very specific needs.

We had hoped to tell all applicants of their success or otherwise by 15 April 2023. However, we have had more applications than we anticipated and are also seeking to increase the total amount of money available. Therefore, we are now planning to notify all applicants by 06th May 2023 at the latest.

All successful bidders will be invited to attend a presentation event at Horbury Working Members Club on the afternoon of Sunday 21st May 2023. This is intended to be an opportunity for successful bidders to tell others of what they are doing in the community and individually.
