Charities and community groups are being invited to apply through the Community Foundation for Calderdale for grants of up to £5,000 after Halifax-based funeral directors Full Circle Funerals contributed £15,000 to the fund.
We are thrilled that an appeal launched by our team in Halifax has raised £2,000 for Calderdale WomenCentre. We decided to approach local businesses and our contacts back in January after hearing that the charity needed practical items to see victims of domestic violence through their first few days away from home.
Businesses in Calderdale have joined forces to support WomenCentre by funding emergency backpacks of supplies for women and children arriving at refuges in the region.
Full Circle Funerals has produced a free to access shared learning guide for those who provide support services to people who are bereaved during the coronavirus pandemic.
