Rural Community Conversation - book your ticket!

Tuesday, March 14, 2023

Please find the Eventbrite details for Northamptonshire Community Foundation’s Community Conversation ‘Shining a Spotlight on Rural Community Needs’ on Thursday 23rd March at 4.30pm.

Welcome to the launch of Northamptonshire Community Foundation’s ‘Shining a Spotlight on Rural Community Needs’ campaign to help champion our rural communities.

Nearly a third of the county live within rural communities, including rural towns. At Northamptonshire Community Foundation , we are developing a focus on rural philanthropy to ensure that these communities get their fair share of funding. This in turn will help tackle urgent needs such as poverty and access to services across our local villages and countryside. We invite you to get involved across the coming weeks and months. We are delighted that we have £100,000 to kickstart a match fund appeal to boost grant awards to rural community projects, thanks to the generous support of the Constance Travis Charitable Trust.

On 23rd March, we'll be hosting the first in a series of Community Conversations about this campaign, which will give us the opportunity to discuss local need and community solutions with our fantastic guest panellists:

Elaine O’Leary - Northamptonshire ACRE

Lynn Hinch – Ability CIC

Caroline Brocklehurst DL – Member of High Sheriff Panel

Jackie Hands – New Albion Wind Farm Panel Member
