Lovewell Blake Fund

The Lovewell Blake Fund supports community and voluntary activity in parts of Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.   Applicants in Norfolk or Suffolk should approach their local community foundation.

Applications for projects in Ely and the surrounding area in North Cambridgeshire are invited through Cambridgeshire Community Foundation.

Grants of up to £2,000 are available for charitable, voluntary and community groups that are addressing social need.  The Fund aims to benefit smaller, often lesser known organisations where such grants would make a real difference to a particular project – making possible something that would not otherwise happen.
