Covid Update March/April 2021

Article from Kesgrave and Martlesham ‘In Touch’ Magazine………

“SPARK is a Kesgrave based charity which has for many years helped to provide, develop and support numerous teams, groups and organisations in Kesgrave.  This may be starting up from scratch, buying new equipment or funding existing activities in Kesgrave.

SPARK recognises that due to the pandemic fund raising has not been able to take place, membership fees and subscriptions may have dropped off and generally funding for your team, group or organisation may have suffered.

SPARK has also had a reduced income due to the 2nd Stop Charity Shop in Kesgrave, from which it receives its funds, having to close during lockdown.  However, with the roadmap in place the shop hopes to re-open on Monday 12th April 2021 when it can again receive your donations and offer a wide variety of excellent items for sale.

SPARK would like to remind those who run or organise activities in Kesgrave that help with funding is still available from SPARK (subject to certain criteria) and they can visit our website at www.kesgrave-spark.org.uk where they can find details of the above criteria.

The website also provides details as to who can apply, how to apply and includes examples of organisations who have received grants in the past.
