Elmbridge Community Fund comes to Parliament

Last Thursday, I hosted an event at the House of Commons to spread awareness of the Elmbridge Community Fund, a local fund designed to raise funds to provide grants to help local groups and charities supporting pockets of social need in Elmbridge. We were joined by local panelists - including Chair Richard Waller, Wendy Varcoe from the Community Foundation for Surrey, entrepreneur Tony Kelly and Walton Charity's Jackie Lodge - and many others interested in supporting the initiative.

As well as trying to spread the word, we were honoured to have the High Sheriff for Surrey, Elizabeth Kennedy, present our third grant to SAY Youth Club in Cobham (pictured below). From stroke victims, those who have suffered domestic abuse, and groups providing positive activities for youngsters, the Elmbridge Community Fund can shine a light on neighbourhoods in need of a helping hand across our borough.
