AWARDS FROM THE ROTARY CLUB OF COCKERMOUTH
The Rotary Club of Cockermouth raises money for its trust fund which is a registered charity. Among others, awards are made to local charities and local good causes. No one in the Rotary club receives payment for this activity.
Local good causes include, but are not restricted to charities, local organisations and local community groups.
The types of activities that the club is likely to support include;
Individual projects or specific one-off project costs which need funding. We cannot commit to supporting continuing activities or activities which require constant maintenance;
Activities which are of benefit to the Cockermouth community (all or in part )
Activities which are character-forming and if carried out abroad are of benefit to the host nation;
Of very specific benefit to an individual where other funding sources are inadequate.
We are unlikely to support:
Ongoing projects which have a constant need for funding;
Contributions to a general fund which although of overall benefit are used for a wide variety of non-specific projects or ongoing maintenance;
National organisations where there is little or no local involvement.
Individual applications not supported by an organization or group.
