The deadline for applications in selected communities has now been extended to the 30th June.

Rebecca Perry, CSR Manager said: “We feel it is extremely important to play an active role in the areas in which we build and the new Community Bursary is the latest step in our ongoing commitment to supporting local initiatives.  It has already generated a lot of interest from local organisations and charities looking for support to fund everything from new sports equipment to running community events.  We wanted to make sure as many groups as possible have the opportunity to apply which is why we have extended the deadline in certain areas.”
