Power company to hand out cash grants to charities and community groups in Sheffield

Power company E.ON is inviting charities and community groups in Sheffield to apply for grants of up to £2,000 through its Energy Action Fund.

To be eligible for funding, charities and community groups must put forward requests to support activities that help bring about a reduction in their own energy use, help generate energy from a renewable source or provide energy efficiency advice for local people.

Applicants are being encouraged to get their funding requests in by Friday, April 8.

Suzanne Doxey, community relations manager at E.ON, said: “I’m really pleased to be announcing a fresh round of our Energy Action Fund. When judging previous applications to the fund, it’s been heartening to come across so many groups with a keen interest in energy, matched by an enthusiasm for sharing the benefits of the projects they’re proposing with the wider community.

“Of course we can’t fund every application, but when we come across a really deserving project which has been thoroughly researched and planned, and just lacks the money to proceed, it’s great to be able to help.”
