Enfield-based charities, community groups, clubs and sports teams are being given their chance to apply for a share of a £15,000 community fund.

Heating and plumbing supplier TG Lynes has launched its ‘Helping Hands’ campaign to help good causes make improvements to their facilities. The firm has its headquarters and main distribution centre in Brimsdown.

Local groups in Enfield are now being invited to apply for support throughout July. The winner will secure £10,000-worth of products and labour from TG Lynes to breathe fresh life into their buildings or facilities. A runner-up will receive £5,000-worth of help.

The winners will be decided by a team of judges at TG Lynes. Martin Hastings, managing director at TG Lynes, said: “We are thrilled to be launching Helping Hands and to be throwing our support behind good causes in Enfield.

“Funding is extremely tough for many charities and clubs at the moment as they battle rising expenses and the cost of living crisis. This support will make a tremendous difference to our two winners.

“As a business, we are committed to operating sustainably. Of course, that means reducing our carbon footprint, but it’s also vitally important to us that we play a positive role in the local community.

“Our people are regularly involved in helping good causes improve their facilities. Helping Hands will allow us to take that support to the next level as we celebrate our 110th anniversary of serving the trade.”

Groups can apply for prizes to help them open new premises, recover a building from a state of disrepair or improve existing facilities.

Applications can be made on the TG Lynes website by providing an overview of what the organisation does, how it benefits the community and how £10,000 worth of product and labour would help.
