Supporting South Somerset

Myakka are the latest new Patron of the Somerset Community Foundation. Director’s Georgie Hopkins and Simon Whitehead decided to invest in the Foundation to help support local community projects here in South Somerset.

 

“We are delighted to be in a position to support The Somerset Community Foundation and provide real benefit to our local community.  As a Patron we will be pledging regular donations to build an endowment fund which will make a real difference to community projects in South Somerset right now, and over the coming years“, commented Simon.

 

Myakka are aiming to build an endowment fund of £25,000.00 over the next 2 years which will be directly used to benefit community projects in South Somerset through the named ‘Myakka Grass Roots Fund’. 

 

“I am pleased to welcome Myakka as our latest Named Fund holder, and I look forward to working with them to bring lasting benefits to local communities in the area. Their support will enable local communities to develop their own responses to their own needs.” commented Justin Sargent, Director of the Somerset Community Foundation.

 

The Somerset Community Foundation is the only charity in Somerset to be supported by the Government’s Grassroots Scheme.  This scheme means the government will match donations by a 100% top-up. The charity aims to build stronger communities by encouraging a culture of local giving to enable local community organisations to thrive.
