Supplier oils the wheels of funding

HELP is at hand for local causes longing for a lift.

Heating oil supplier F. Peart & Co has launched a charitable bursary to support worthwhile causes and is calling out for nominations from the whole of Northumberland.

With the company providing oil and diesel to rural and remote communities in the county for more than 80 years, it is now extending its support even further.

Business Manager Laura Jackson said: “This bursary is our way of extending our time and support to everyone in Northumberland and keeping in touch with the communities we are a part of and work hard for.

“We do have criteria and ask that all nominations are made from local sources and are relevant to causes in Northumberland. Plus, once the bursary is gone, it’s gone, so we suggest causes get their applications in early.

“Whether your parish building needs a bit of TLC, you are taking part in a sponsored walk and need an extra donation to hit your target, or your local sports team has been playing in the same worn-out kit for the last five years among other reasons, we want to hear from you.”

Applicants should email or send a letter to Laura Jackson, F. Peart & Co, Baltic Street, Hartlepool, TS25 1PW, outlining the name of your organisation or cause, where it is based, what it does in, or to support the local community and (in no more than 200 words) what funding is required and what it will be used for.

Full contact details should also be included so the company can get in touch.
