  • Small Grants announcement 2021

    Since the start of the pandemic East Brighton Trust has responded through our grant giving to a range of emergency situations caused by the Covid crisis. Throughout 2020 we awarded a significant amount of grants totalling over £60,000, directing these where they were most needed and benefiting thousands of people across East Brighton. Read about these →

    Like many businesses, we have been impacted by the pandemic and have seen a reduction in our earnings. This has affected the amount of funds we are able to distribute. 

    We have therefore decided to limit our small grants awards to Summer and Winter grants of £500 for the 2021/22 financial year. We will notbe accepting ad hoc grants outside of the small grants process.

    This will enable us to reach as many groups as possible across East Brighton. 

  • Whitehawk Foodbank has been given a grant by the Hendy Foundation

    Hendy Foundation has donated £333 to Whitehawk Foodbank which provides short term emergency provisions for those in Whitehawk and the wider East Brighton area

    Sean Avard, food bank manager said clients needing support has increased dramatically since the start of the pandemic.

    He said: “Before the pandemic we were providing food for around 50 people per week but this has risen to more than 220 adults and 150 children per week.
     
    "Each meal costs an average of £1.65 so the Hendy Foundation donation has provided 201 meals to those in need and we thank the foundation for thinking of us at this time."

    Hendy Foundation chair Rebecca Hendy said the trustees had pledged to help a number of foodbanks during the crisis.
