£10,000 available for community cohesion and social inclusion Creme of Nature Community Action Award
Now into its third year, the Creme of Nature £10,000 Community Action Award is focused on those with great ideas and vision in African Caribbean voluntary, faith and community groups, whose primary objective is to support and encourage women. This nationwide Award is dedicated to community cohesion and social inclusion.
The Creme of Nature Community Action Award is all about giving something back to the community that has supported one of the most well known brands in the hair and beauty market for the past 30 years. If you or your organisation has a dream, now is the chance to make it a reality. Imagine what £10,000 cash could do and what it could achieve. Applications are welcome from individuals to small groups, but priority will be given to those who have an annual turnover of less than £50,000.
In 2008 the Award was presented to Be Totally You who created a Hair Training Salon in Bromley and this year’s award was presented to the Shern Hall Methodist Youth Steel Band who had been waiting for over 4 years for a set of their own pans and who now have to wait no longer.
Ellen Thomas (l), Antonia Okonma (r) and Randolph Gray present the £10,000 cheque to 2008 winner Beverley Ejimofo
Dona Croll and Randolph Gray present £10,000 to 2009 winners, Shern Hall Youth Steel Band
This Award is all about making a real difference. So if you are small with a big idea and just lacking funding, the Creme of Nature £10,000 Community Action Award could be just what you need to make your dreams come true and start to make a real difference to the community you serve.
Applications for the 2010 award can be made now. Apply at www.cremeofnature.co.uk or if you have any questions call the Creme of Nature Community Action Award Team on 01264 355 846.
