Mumfords football match success

We would like to thank the hundreds of people at the Mumfords Football match who supported the Lewes Fund by buying programmes and raffles tickets.

We raised more than £600, which will provide an extra grant to a local community group in this autumn’s grant round.

The matches, organised by Lewes Football Club, were a great initiative and community event.

The Lewes Fund has now raised over £50,000 since it was launched last year and is a great way for the community to channel financial support to the activities and volunteers in the many small, local community groups in need of funding.

The Nutty Wizard, DELTA Disability, and Diversity Lewes were the recipients of our first three grants last year.

Our web site www.lewesfund.org.uk has details of how you can donate or apply for a grant.
