Mills and Reeve Cambridge Grassroots Endowed Fund
The Mills and Reeve Cambridge Grassroots Endowed Fund is invested and each year the fund makes small grants to support small, local voluntary and community groups and organisations that are undertaking charitable work in Cambridgeshire.
Grants are given to those projects helping people that face disadvantage and to those that engage and support local people, and therefore build stronger, healthier, inclusive and sustainable communities. The fund focuses around CCF's 'Improving Lives' funding stream which supports the following core grant programmes: Children and Families, Adults facing life crisis and Adults with health conditions.
The following are examples of projects that have benefited from grants from the Mills and Reeve Cambridge Fund:
The Laughter Specialists Charitable Trust received £600 to provide 2 specialists to run 12 training sessions for new Laughter Specialists at Granta School and Addenbrookes Hospital.
RestART received £750 to contribute to the costs of providing a therapy team at Abbey Meadows primary school one day a week.
Meadows Children and Family Wing received £1,250 to run additional activities for older siblings during the summer holidays.
Mind in Cambridgeshire received £526 to run a Workplace Intervention Project project towards suicide prevention amongst men.
