Belfast Harbour Launches Community Awards Fund
David Dobbin, Chair of Belfast Harbour, said:
“We are delighted to launch the Belfast Harbour Community Awards Fund and to open this first round of applications to organisations.”
“The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all sections of our society. As a Trust Port, Belfast Harbour reinvests every penny of its net profits back into the development of our Port and Harbour Estate. We do this primarily for the benefit of our customers but also for our local communities and the whole region. As we respond to the social and economic impacts of the last year, we are committed to supporting projects that can help our local communities to recover.”
“We have a well established track record of supporting our local communities and charitable, training/employment and environmental initiatives. This new fund will supplement our ongoing work with our existing charity and delivery partners and will enable Belfast Harbour to support new grass-roots community based activities at this especially challenging time.”
In order to be considered, organisations should complete the Belfast Harbour Community Awards application form, and include details and costs about the proposed project. Application forms and guidelines are available on Belfast Harbour’s website https://www.belfast-harbour.co.uk/corporate/community-awards-fund along with details of entry and assessment criteria.
