Barney's Fund looking for new applications!

Earlier today, I had the pleasure of chairing the Barney's Fund committee, the charity set up by local business Barnetts Motor Group to help worthy causes in the local area.

We are looking for new applications from local charities and good causes - more details from our news release below:

NEWS RELEASE :   Local charity Barney's Fund looking for new applications

Local charities, community groups and worthwhile local projects are set to receive a boost to their fundraising efforts towards the end of this year with the help of Barnetts Motor Group’s Barney’s Charity Fund.  

The Barney’s Fund Committee are now accepting applications for its second 2012 tranche of awards and would like to invite local charities, community groups or projects to apply for a small donation or grant to help support their existing fundraising efforts.
