Success in funding for the Support Staffordshire Volunteer Centre in Cannock Chase

Michelle Cliff, Locality Officer for Cannock Chase recently collected a cheque for £200 for the Cannock Chase volunteer centre service through the ASDA community programme.

The ASDA programme benefits local groups, schools and good causes through green token votes given to shoppers in ASDA stores.  ASDA selects three local causes on a quarterly basis with the winner getting the most tokens receiving £500 and the others £200 each.

Michelle Cliff says, “I would encourage any organisation to contact the Community Champion in a local ASDA store and find out how to apply.”

Funding available to support Staffordshire’s communities

Organisations from across Staffordshire are being invited to apply for funding to help support their local communities.

A new round of the £10m annual fund available through the Ministry of Defence’s Armed Forces Covenant Fund is now open until the end of 2018. This funding offers financial support to organisations and projects to help bring together Armed Forces and civilian communities and deliver local services to the Armed Forces Community.
