Deadline Approaches For Southern Vectis Community Fund Applications

Time is running out for local charities, schools, sports teams and events organisers to apply for Southern Vectis’ popular Community Fund.

The local bus operator’s good causes initiative is a dedicated resource for backing local groups with funding, marketing help, free travel or the use of its buses for events.

But, with allocation windows in May and November, anyone wishing to apply must hurry. 

“At Southern Vectis, we’re proud to play a role within the local community,” said Southern Vectis general manager, Richard Tyldsley.  

“As well as providing bus services across the area, we endeavour to support and raise awareness for those doing excellent work on behalf of those living here. 

“The Southern Vectis Community Fund is open to everyone - from charities to sports teams - and we encourage anyone who needs a helping hand, however big or small, to apply.”

To apply for May’s allocation, groups should visit Southern Vectis’ website and provide details about their cause, what they need, and the difference this support might make to their organisation - before the end of this month. 

Previous recipients include Newport Carnival and Isle of Wight Explorer Scouts.
