Helping small and local Charities in the South West
Church House are delighted to be able to support the Somerset Fund, another great initiative from the Somerset Community Foundation.
The Somerset Fund brings together businesses and individuals who want to support small, local charities in Somerset, with 50% matched funding from Somerset County Council.
Laura Blake, Development Director, told us: “We’re hugely grateful to businesses like Church House Investment Management who choose to give through The Somerset Fund. Since the Fund was launch in 2018, we have together supported 84 good causes in the county and awarded more than £120,000 in grants to local grass-roots charities. Donations support a wide range of charities, from local youth groups, to sports clubs and from mental health charities to support for older people. It's a great way for local people to give to local good causes, helping to strengthen our communities and change lives across Somerset.”
James Johnsen, CH Director commented: “Church House is delighted to support the Somerset Fund, not least because our donation has been doubled by the County Council. Compared to some, we have not been too badly impacted by the wretched virus but realise that for many others in the S.W where we have a base, times are hard. We knew from our previous contact that routing a donation via the Somerset Community Foundation was probably the best way to go about helping”.
