Community funds

Kerrygold, the butter brand owned by a cooperative of Irish dairy
farmers, has launched the Kerrygold Community Awards.
First run last year, the awards are designed to` encourage, support and
reward people all over the UK that come together to achieve a common
goal that brings benefits to a whole community`. People or organisations
with a good idea for a community project and who require funding may
enter the Community Awards. However, national registered charities are
excluded from entering: the rules state that projects must be `staffed
by members of that community. These projects should be non-profit
generating and should not be initiated by national registered charities`.
