Calor rural community fund

We are proud to support projects inyour local rural community.

What is our Calor Rural Community Fund?

We’ve offered grants of up to £5,000 for projects that will provide an on-going service for local communities, and many rural communities and projects off the mains gas grid have submitted projects for funding and then encouraged people to vote for them. The 10 projects in each category that received the most public votes were shortlisted as finalists and then reviewed by a panel of judges, who have now selected the 9 winning projects for funding.
