Anyone living in Hull or the areas of East Yorkshire where we provide phone and broadband services can apply for a grant. Your application must be on behalf of a local community group, charity, voluntary group, club, school or other not-for-profit organisation, although you don’t need to work or have any formal association with them.
Amanda Best, chair of Friends of St Anne's
The grant must be used to benefit people living in our region. It can be used for specific purchases or to run activities or an event. Previous grants have been used to stage poetry competitions, create gardens, run community-based weight loss programmes and to buy everything from sports equipment to school library books – the options are almost endless. Grants must be used within six months of being awarded.
Alison Ripley, branch general manager at RSPCA
Every three months our community panel – made up of KCOM employees who live and work in the region – considers every application we received during the period and selects six finalists.
After that, we’ll open voting to the public for two weeks to decide the winners – so it’s over to you to drum up support for your application!
Special Stars Foundation, KCOM community grant recipient
When choosing finalists our community panel is looking for applications that will make a positive difference to members of the local community. Ideally, the grant should cover the whole cost or most of the cost of a project, purchase or event, rather than being put towards a bigger fundraising target.
