Ludlow Rotary Cares 2017 is now closed for applications.

Background – Over each of the last two years year the Rotary Club of Ludlow was able to invest around £5,000 in a range of local community projects through the initiative ‘Ludlow Rotary Cares’. This year, following a very successful Ludlow Dog Day event at Stokesay Court held in July, the Club has invested nearly £6000 in our local communities.

‘Ludlow Rotary Cares’ is the name the Club has given to a scheme aimed at encouraging funding applications from charities and other organisations supporting community life in and around Ludlow which could benefit from a modest grant of up to £500. Please follow the links if you would like to know about successful applications in 2015 and 2016

Judging of Applications – The Club is very open minded about the types of activities it will support through the Ludlow Rotary Cares initiative so long as the project or programme responds to a specific community need in or within 15 miles of Ludlow and meets its criteria on the giving of grants. What the Club needs to understand is exactly what the money will be used for, who will benefit from it and how much difference it will make.

Awards made in 2017 – Having received over 40 expressions of interest that resulted in some 30 applications, 14 awards were made. On November 7th, following presentations by those short listed, the panel of judges, comprising of 3 members of Ludlow Rotary Club and Nicky Kershaw, Deputy Lieutenant of Shropshire agreed awards of up to £500 per organisation.

The organisations that received awards were The Second Ludlow Girl Guides, The Ludlow Fringe Festival Youth Arts Project, Working Together, Whitefriars and Beech Gardens Club, SpArC Theatre Bishops Castle, “Scrappiest”, Onibury Village Hall, Loudwater Studio, Ludlow Town Juniors, Craven Arms Youth Group, Clun Memorial Play Ground, Bishops Castle Guerrilla Gardens, Clee Hill Community Wildlife Group and Cleobury Mortimer Horticultural Society.
