Chamber Members will hopefully be aware of the launch of THE LOCAL FUND for the Harrogate District earlier this year. The fund has been created by a partnership led by Chamber member and local support and development charity Harrogate & Ripon Centres for Voluntary Service.

The overall ambition is to ensure that the Harrogate District has its own significant pot of money to support local charitable activity in the district.  This will be a long term, sustainable fund available to invest in projects and activities that benefit local communities & residents, focussing on the key local issues and needs of our area, such as loneliness and isolation, support for carers and mental health.

The new Friends of THE LOCAL FUND offers a way for businesses to become involved in supporting the fund and ensuring its success.

The beautiful surroundings of Rudding Park will be most comfortable and attractive on a spring evening and we promise to make the event as informative and interesting as possible. THE LOCAL FUND partnership team will give a full update on progress since the launch in January and plans for the rest of 2018, including the link with the new Harrogate District Local Lottery which goes live later in the year.  We also want to spend some time seeking your views on the role of the Friends in supporting THE LOCAL FUND and the ways in which people can be involved

If you would like to join us could you please book your place via this link, so we can assist Rudding Park with arranging the room and refreshments:
