Elmbridge Community Fund

On Thursday evening, Nigel and Susie Abbott hosted a drinks reception to spread the word and promote support for the Elmbridge Community Fund (ECF). Our Chairman, Richard Waller, introduced the evening. I spoke followed by Wendy Varcoe of the Community Foundation for Surrey, and then a presentation by Oasis family centre in Cobham - our first recipient of an ECF grant.

The idea of the fund is to create a permananent endowment that can yield an income to provide grants for areas of real need in our communities across a borough that is - overall - relatively affluent. It was a great evening, and we plan to do more of these social occasions to raise the profile of, and funds for, the ECF. Many thanks to Nigel and Susie for hosting us all.
