Community Kickstart - Supported By The Breeze

charity grants hampshire surrey

The Breeze is supporting a fantastic resource for good causes across Hampshire and south-west Surrey. Community Kickstart provides grants to organisations across the region every week over the next 12 months (excluding Christmas and August).

Money will not be paid to an individual person, it should be a group (whether big or small) and applicants, along with referees, should be available at all times to receive a phone call from the judge or they may forfeit their opportunity to receive a grant.

Two worthy causes will be selected each week by a judge independent of The Breeze and it’s parent company Celador Radio and the total funds for the year will be £25,000.

Nominees will be announced on The Breeze every Monday morning with the amount awarded revealed on the Friday of that week. Further terms and conditions can be found at the bottom of this page.

Fill out the form in full, including details of the applicant and referee.

Alternatively, you can print a form (click here to open the pdf. form) and post to Grand Judge, Community Chest, c/o The Breeze, Roman Landing, Kingsway, Southampton SO14 1BN.

Terms & Conditions:

  • The name of the organisation to whom a cheque may be paid must be included on the form and must never be one person’s name. The group applying must have a bank account. However, it is not essential to have charitable status.
  • The Breeze, Celador Radio and the charitable trust hold no responsibility for money paid to groups.  Awards made will be solely the decision of the independent judge, and no award will be open for discussion by the radio station, charitable trust or judge.
  • Any group given money from the fund needs to allow up to a month for a cheque to be authorised and sent to them.​
