People in Lichfield are being invited to nominate local organisations for a funding boost.

Housebuilder Taylor Wimpey West Midlands has launched the Community Chest competition, which offers a £1,000 to a group in need of a helping hand.

Angie Prince, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey West Midlands, said:

“We are always proud to support the local communities in which we build, but this past year it has been more important than ever.

“We want to help those who are going above and beyond to make a difference. If you know a worthy cause in your area, we would love to hear about them.”

Nominations will need to be received by 25th June.

  1. I would love to nominate LIBERTY. This group provide relevant exciting activities for children and young adults with a range of learning and physical disabilities. Without them my daughter who has Cerebral Palsy and speech and visual difficulties was becoming increasingly isolated. Now she regularly has something to look forward to and is developing wonderful friendship groups.

  2. My nomination goes to Friends 2 Friends, a local charity which is a friendship and support group for local adults of all ages with disabilities and vulnerabilities. My daughter has been a member since 2014 and over this time I have seen her confidence and self esteem bloom. Members meet regularly, choose activities and regularly take part in community events. During the long period of Covid lockdowns, Friends 2 Friends have continued to support members during this difficult time with regular phone calls, Zoom sessions and also put together and delivered booster bags to members’ homes to cheer them up. This is a truly wonderful organisation that would benefit hugely from a donation

  3. Both look like very worthwhile nominations.

    Apologies if the posters are fully aware of this, but I’ve seen this happen before, so I’m just going to put it out there that that any nominations need to be sent to the email address provided in the article above. Posting your nominations on here are lovely to read, but it’s not a Lichfield Live funding initiative, and any posts on here won’t necessarily be considered by the people running the actual grant scheme…
