Kelvin Re in the Community
The programme is driven by a Community Support Team, which is provided with an annual budget to be spread across a minimum of four charities or schools, successful applicants will typically be selected in November each year. We would like potential applicants to have a fully costed proposal for between £2,000 and £5,000 (smaller or larger sums also considered by exception) and ideally be a registered charity or school. Successful applications must demonstrate a benefit to Guernsey with a focus on education, arts, health, sustainability, sport and the environment (especially maritime).
In previous years Kelvin Re has supported projects such as Wooden Spoon’s Beach Wheelchair Project, where our bursary provided a ‘beach hut’ style storage unit for newly acquired beach wheel chairs for use by people experiencing difficulties in walking, a programme of group session for children and mothers impacted by domestic abuse and solar panel equipment for Lihou Island. Our bursaries have also supported the Guernsey branch of the RNLI by funding a replacement Chart-plotter; ensuring crew safety, the island's all-weather boat, and ultimately the community who need assistance.
