Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally charity has launched a third round of its Heart of the Community Awards initiative, which will support communities across the UK in celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this year.
The Heart of the Community Awards will this time enable Nisa partners to nominate a local group, charity or good cause to receive up to £1,000 of funding from Making a Difference Locally, to help communities celebrate the historic occasion with events such as afternoon teas, garden parties and street parties.
Nominations will be accepted from Nisa partners via a dedicated website until 18th March and 70 winners, to mark the Queen’s 70-year reign, will be selected to receive funding for their community celebrations. Donations could be used towards entertainment, equipment, food and drinks, venue hire or decorations, and each winning good causes will also receive a decorative MADL POS kit with bunting.
Kate Carroll, Nisa’s Head of Charity, said: “We received a fantastic response to our two previous rounds of funding, so we’re delighted to be able to bring back the Heart of the Community Awards for a third round of donations.
“This special Jubilee edition of the Awards will give the opportunity for 70 of our fantastic Nisa retailers to celebrate this exciting and joyous event with the communities they serve, bringing people together to mark the Queen’s historic reign.”
Almost 90 good causes nationwide have benefitted from donations totalling more than £310,000 in previous rounds of the Heart of the Community Awards initiative, cementing it as Making a Difference Locally’s biggest funding giveaway to date.
