Nisa’s charity donates £150,000 to support local communities

Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally charity has helped retailers to support local good causes with £150,000 in donations in October with its latest round of Heart of the Community Awards.

The initiative enabled Nisa retailers to nominate a local charity or community group to receive up to £3,000 of funding, with an emphasis on projects supporting people living in crisis and helping them to become more self-sufficient.

The Heart of the Community Awards saw 69 charities and good causes nationwide benefit from donations of between £1,000 and £3,000. Examples of the winning causes include foodbanks gifting slow cookers to their service users, SIM cards for Ukrainian refugees arriving in the UK, and projects providing cookery lessons to low-income families.

In September, Making a Difference Locally announced that it had raised £15 million for good causes since the charity’s formation in 2008 and launched its fourth round of Heart of the Community Awards to celebrate the milestone achievement.

Kate Carroll, Nisa’s head of charity, said: “Applications for this round of funding were phenomenal and we’re thrilled that so many very deserving causes have benefited from funding, especially during such difficult times.”
