To celebrate our 9th anniversary and the emergence from over a year of lockdowns we are delighted to launch our community events fund which will provide free or discounted use of our new events space, Platform 2, for local community groups and charities.
The fund launches with a £9k pot of funding, which is £1,000 for every year Matthews Yard has been running and is equal to the amount of funding provided to Matthews Yard by local Councillors in 2020 from their ward budget allocations.
The fund will be topped up with donations and grants from individuals, businesses and organisations who want to see a diverse range of community activities at our West Croydon premises after covid restrictions have been removed.
Local individuals, organisations and groups who would like to apply for subsidised events space in Croydon need to complete a simple form providing some information about their event and we will respond within 28 days to let them know if their application has been successful.
We expect this initial pot of funding will be enough to support up to 100 community events to take place in 2021 and would encourage anyone who wants to help us do more to make a donation using the form on the right.
Thank you all for your love and support. #StrongerTogether
