2019 Community Benefit Fund Awards

In 2019, CCEL awarded a total of £3000 funding to four local community groups from its community benefit fund. The awarding of the fund was carried out by a panel of two shareholders and a director of CCEL with the help of Chester Voluntary Action. 17 applications were received and four were selected for funding. The successful applicants were: Campbell Memorial Hall, New Images Youth Centre, Live Scene and Vernon Institute

Another great year

Thanks to the great weather this year,  a 4% dividend to our members for this financial year was agreed at our 2nd AGM.

4 recipients of community benefit fund awarded

CCEL has awarded £1000 of its community benefit fund to four successful applicants: Frodsham Community Association, Neston Community Youth Centre, Retreat House Chester and Cheshire Waste Reduction Volunteers. The funds will primarily be used to install energy efficient LED lighting, and also to purchase two large compost bins for use in local schools and education.
