The Jason Roberts Foundation has been shortlisted for the Lloyds Bank Community Fund 2014 in Wembley.
By encouraging the public to vote, the Jason Roberts Foundation has a chance to be awarded a grant of up to £3,000 from Lloyds Bank to enable it to continue doing good work in the community.
The Jason Roberts Foundation was established in 2007 with the principal aim to enable young people to realise their full potential by equipping them with the tools to succeed in life, achieve wellbeing and aspire to be the best they can be, through sport, educational and cultural activities.
The aim of the Foundation is to deliver sustainable programmes, helping young people to reach their potential by creating an encouraging learning environment with effective participation and a pathway for all to develop and grow.
Over the last 7-years the Foundation has engaged over 128,000 children, young people and young adults in London and the Caribbean, in a range of sports and educational programmes, all designed to encourage, enable and create wider opportunities in their lives.
Otis Roberts, CEO of the Foundation said: “The Lloyds Bank Community Fund will make a huge difference to the Jason Roberts Foundation by enabling us to continue to deliver a wide range of sporting, educational and cultural activities in a safe and inclusive environment, making a difference to the lives of hundreds of young people in Brent. Please vote for the Jason Roberts Foundation to benefit from the Community Fund award.”
The Lloyds Bank Community Fund was set up to help local people across England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands and Isle of Man to have a positive impact at the heart of their community by giving grants to up to 1,400 local good causes in 350 communities.
There are four good causes shortlisted in each community and Lloyds Bank is inviting everyone to vote for the causes they’d most like to support.
Members of the public can vote for their preferred community group on-line, by SMS or Twitter, or in a branch of Lloyds bank from 2 September to 10 October 2014. The local good cause that receives most votes in each community will receive an award of £3,000, with the other groups receiving £2,000, £1,000 or £500 depending on the votes received.
