Due to the outbreak of Covid-19, Bekonscot was forced to close its doors on Friday 20th March for an undetermined period of time, but likely to be several months. The resulting loss in income is going to have a significant effect on the amount of funds available for distribution this year through The Roland Callingham Foundation Grants.
At this point in time we are unable to say what funds will be available for grants come September; the date when they would normally be paid, so for the time being we will not be accepting any further applications. Those organisations that have already submitted an application will be kept informed as the situation develops and our position becomes clearer, and we ask for your understanding in these most unprecedented of times.
Our grants administrator is now on furlough leave so if you have any questions regarding the grants please send them to our general email address firstname.lastname@example.org which is still being monitored.
