The 2023 Community Chest is open


The independent family-owned Dorset brewer, Hall & Woodhouse, has launched its 22nd Community Chest Awards. Applications are open for charitable organisations to seek support from the pledged £50,000 fund. The Community Chest supports a wide range of charities and community projects, providing grants from £300 to £3,000. The longstanding annual initiative aims to assist with various projects, educational activities, running costs, and the expansion of charitable activities. Mark Woodhouse, Family Director, said: ’Hall & Woodhouse’s purpose is to enrich our local communities. I hope that the Community Chest will once again play an important role in supporting the many great voluntary organisations in our trading area across the south. It’s a privilege to be able to support the vital projects that make such a difference to their local communities.’
Since 2002, over £750,000 has been donated to more than 900 causes, and partnerships with Dorset and Sussex Community Foundations have been established.
Successful applicants will be notified in November 2023, with an awards ceremony in January 2024, involving a judging panel consisting of Hall & Woodhouse team members, family, and local business leaders.
