East of England provider County Broadband has launched its Hypercharged Foundation with thousands of pounds of grant funding available to support local charity projects and good causes in rural communities.
The Hypercharged Foundation is an independent grant-giving charity that aims to support charities and good causes that make a positive impact in rural communities where County Broadband is rolling out its full-fibre networks.
Eligible groups and individuals across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk can apply for grants between £250 and £5,000 from the Foundation.
Hypercharged Foundation trustee, Cheriton Alexander, said: “We know times are tough right now and more challenges lie ahead, but supporting local rural communities is hard-wired into our DNA, which is why we’re very excited to launch the Hypercharged Foundation.
“Our mission is to award grants to local charities, groups and other good causes who are making a real difference. Whether you’re fundraising to improve your sports club or village hall, or you’re struggling with transportation for older people or those living with disabilities, or if you just need some help coming up with a good idea – we want to hear from you!
“Rest assured that our grant process is streamlined to make it as easy and as quick as possible for you to receive your funding and start making a life-changing impact within your local community. We look forward to supporting you and making a difference together.”
