Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Your Garden - BY NI­COLA KENYON

ASOUTHPORT busi­ness has do­nated a stag­ger­ing £10,000 to Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion.

Va­pable, a re­tail com­pany that sup­plies vapours for e-cigs, has do­nated £10,000 to the char­ity to help sup­port good causes in the lo­cal area.

Mark Hal­sall, owner of Va­pable, which is based in Banks, has been look­ing for a char­ity to sup­port for some time but wanted to make sure it was the right one.

Mark found Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion (CLF) on­line and af­ter dis­cus­sions with the team at Va­pable, de­cided that it was the right char­ity to make a do­na­tion to.

CLF is a char­ity which aims to sup­port and en­hance the lives of peo­ple in South­port and the sur­round­ing ar­eas.

It does this by giv­ing out grants to in­di­vid­u­als and or­gan­i­sa­tions that need fund­ing which will im­prove the qual­ity of peo­ple’s lives.

Mark, a fa­ther of two, said: “When we started to look into what it is that CLF do, we knew they were what we had been look­ing for.

“We re­ally like that they give out a good range of do­na­tions, from help­ing lo­cal chil­dren who are fundrais­ing to have a life chang­ing op­er­a­tion, to lo­cal sports teams who are in need of equip­ment which will ben­e­fit the com­mu­nity.

“Me and the team liked that the money stays within the lo­cal com­mu­nity and it’s nice to know that the money we’ve do­nated will stay here and we will be able to see ex­actly what it is be­ing used for.”

Enda Ry­lands, chair­man of Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion, said: “We are very grateful to Va­pable for choos­ing Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion to re­ceive this in­cred­i­ble amount of money.

“The do­na­tion means that we will be able to help more peo­ple lo­cally.

“It is thanks to Va­pable’s gen­eros­ity and the on­go­ing sup­port from mem­bers of the South­port Com­mu­nity Lottery and other donors, that we are able to help so many peo­ple in this area, and this do­na­tion will make a re­ally pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence.”
