As autumn arrives, applications for grants from funds raised by the Country Fayre are normally requested from organisations and local good causes.
However, this year the KCF Steering Group has had to make the difficult decision not to accept any grant applications.
You may be aware that the devastating floods of 2016 that led to the cancellation of the June Fayre had a major – and very nearly disastrous – impact on the event’s finances.
Luckily 2017 has restored the balance, but despite all the hard work involved in staging a successful Fayre, not enough money remained as surplus to provide grants. Funds must be retained to safeguard the financial future of Kinver Country Fayre.
The Steering Group has had no choice but to allocate those funds that are available to organisations and supporters directly involved in the staging of the Fayre. They will be notified of these donations in due course.
The KCF Charity has given out over £50.000 in grants over the last six years and is committed to continue raising money for these worthwhile causes.
