HAPPY New Year! As we en­ter 2017 ev­ery­one at Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion is look­ing for­ward to every­thing that the year ahead has in store.

We had a good year of fundrais­ing in 2016 thanks to the sup­port of peo­ple and or­gan­i­sa­tions from across the area and we are now hop­ing to build on that suc­cess.

We would love even more peo­ple to join in with the fundrais­ing in 2017 which will en­able us to dis­trib­ute more money lo­cally.

The Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion is a char­ity with a dif­fer­ence; we raise money that is then given to peo­ple and or­gan­i­sa­tions who ap­ply to us for grants that they need for a whole range of rea­sons.

In 2016 we gave out thou­sands of pounds raised by peo­ple in the area, and in the next 12 months we would like to be able to give out even more.

Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion cov­ers South­port, Formby, Orm­skirk, Ains­dale, Burscough, Hes­keth Bank, Ruf­ford, Banks and the ar­eas in be­tween.

Maybe your work­place is look­ing for a char­ity to sup­port in the com­ing year, or maybe you are think­ing of an event that you are go­ing to or­gan­ise and you would like the money to go to some­one lo­cally.

If this is the case then there is plenty of in­for­ma­tion on our web­site of ideas for fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties and how to get spon­sor­ship.

And we would be there to sup­port you with plan­ning the event too.

We’d love to hear from you and see how we can work to­gether to help peo­ple in 2017.

For more in­for­ma­tion, go to our web­site www.clfoun­da­tion. co.uk or con­tact us on Face­book.

Let’s hope the fire­works her­ald a good year for all
