Since 2014 we have been operating a Magna Park Community Fund to support local charities and organisations located in close proximity to Magna Park. In the last 5 years we have made donations to 54 different organisations and individuals and contributed £117,051.
We have two outstanding applications which I will be considering with the Panel in the next few weeks. After this we will bring the curtain down on this initiative and we will participate and contribute to a new Lutterworth Community Projects initiative – further details to follow.
In addition to the above we sponsor a local Lutterworth schoolgirl £1,000 per year over a 3 year period to support her swimming activities – she is in the GB Team. 2019 will be the 3rd instalment.
We have also donated £6,000 to Dementia UK which was raised in 2018 from the Gazeley Bike Ride and Magna Park Golf Day. We will host the bike ride and golf day again this year and aim to raise further funds.
We are also committed to supporting the establishment of a Dementia Centre in Lutterworth. Which will be called the “Gazeley Centre”. We have pledged £100,000 to get the initiative off the ground. A venue has now been secured and refurbishment works are due to start shortly with a view to the Centre opening in the Autumn.
