Community fund expands to support more causes

Stratford Editorial 23rd Feb, 2024   0

A COMMUNITY fund set up to support projects in and around a south Warwickshire village is expanding to ensure more causes can apply for support.

The Wigley Community Fund was launched by Warwickshire-based property and development company The Wigley Group in 2021 and has donated £30,000 to good causes since then.

It was initially launched to support individuals and groups within five miles of its Stockton House headquarters, in the village of Stockton, but it is now expanding to a 7.5-mile radius.

The fund opens twice a year to applications and offers a total of £10,000 each year, with applications for the next round of funding opening between March 1 and 10.




So far, the fund has supported 28 individuals or groups since launching, with an average donation of just over £1,000.

Previous donations have ranged from purchasing equipment for local sports clubs and community groups, funding a defibrillator for the village of Stockton, and paying for specialised therapy for a three-year-old Southam girl born with a rare form of cerebral palsy.


CEO James Davies said: “The Wigley Community Fund is another key strand of our commitment to our community and we are proud it has supported such a wide range of individuals and groups in Stockton and the surrounding villages.”
