Returning for a fifth year in a row, the Galaxy Hot Chocolate Fund will be giving away 85 awards of £300 over a 17-week period to local community projects across the UK and Ireland.
Local charities, community groups and individuals can apply for an award to help support sporting or leisure activities or hobbies that are beneficial to members of the community.
Each week, four of the five available awards will be selected by a panel of judges who will judge each entry (and use of the award) on:
- The extent to which the proposed initiative will help the local community in question.
- The extent of the proposed initiative’s reach.
- The perceived local need for such hobbies, sporting or leisure activities.
The remaining award will go to the project that has received the most public votes on the Galaxy Hot Chocolate website.
Applications quick and easy to fill out. Interested groups should fill in the online form and explain, in 200 words or less, what their organisation does and why the £300 grant would be influential in carrying out their project. Unsuccessful entries will automatically be carried forward to the following week, although any public votes already secured will be discarded and voting will begin again for all projects.
The final deadline for applications is 28 February 2016 (11:59pm).
Full terms and conditions can be found on the Galaxy Hot Chocolate website
