Everards Community Excellence Fund open for Nominations with £40,000 available to support community projects this summer!

Do you know of a community project that could do with a little funding? You could help.

Everards are delighted to announce that with the support from The Everard Family Foundation and Carling once again, nomination open on April 5th 2021 for their Everards Community Excellence Fund which sees £40,000 available to support community projects within a 20 mile radius of an Everards pub.

This is all made possible thanks to the funding from The Everards Family Foundation and Carling.

Previous year’s fund saw an array of entries and helped to set up a number of brand-new community groups, replace very old chairs in a village hall, install a fire door at a library, buy a wheelchair for a basketball club and support a local trust who provide canal boat trips for the elderly and vulnerable, to name just a few.

If you know of a project that is struggling to get off the ground, equipment that needs replacing or a community space in desperate need of renovation get your nominations in and your community could get a share of the £40,000 fund pot.

All you need to do is complete a nomination form online at

Nominations open Monday 5th April 2021 and will close on Friday 30th April 2021. All entries will go through a judging panel in May and the winners will be notified at the end of May with projects hoping to be started in June.
