Community groups benefit from council efficiencies

Twenty-one community groups from across Bolsover District have benefitted from a partnership arrangement between Efficiency East Midlands (EEM) and ourselves. cheque presentation to voluntary groups in Council Chamber

As a not-for-profit organisation, EEM chooses to distribute all operating surplus to its membership in the form of Community Donations and we distributed our share to local community and voluntary organisations as part of our Community Donation Scheme.

Twenty-one groups all received a share of the £4,200 (£200 each) pot of money which will help contribute to or pay for their activities, new equipment, transport or general running costs.

Council Chair, Councillor Tom Munro presented each of the organisations with their cheque and said, “Even though it’s not huge sums of money, grants such as these can often mean the difference between a club’s survival or it disbanding. We realise the importance these clubs play in our local communities and are pleased that we are able to help support them in this way.”

The following groups received a grant: Sing along with Ellie (Pinxton and South Normanton), Glapwell Colliery Cricket Club, Welcome Space (Glapwell), The Langwith Society, Helping Hands Club (Clowne), Shirebrook Miners Welfare, Barlborough School Trust, Blackwell Miners Welfare Football and Cricket Club, Whaley Thorns and Langwith Residents, Bolsover Camera Club, Palterton Residents Association, The Brook Community Church and Centre (Shirebrook), Empowering Young People, Louise Smalley Walk (Whitwell), Bolsover District First Responders, Crags Radio (Creswell), Clowne Local History Group, Thr1ve Social Prescribing, Bolsover Castle Bowling Club, Hillstown Bowls Club, Bolsover 50plus Social Hub.

EEM works collaboratively with 341 public sector organisations, including ourselves, to create cost and efficiency savings in their procurement frameworks and purchasing systems.
