Crowdfunder and M&S Energy have launched the M&S Energy Community Fund Competition 2020 for communities which are committed to going green.
Charities, community groups, schools, social enterprises and other not-for-profit organisations can bid for a share of £40,000 match-funding to go towards a crowdfunding campaign as well as one-to-one coaching from Crowdfunder for environmentally conscious community projects which are committed to installing renewable technology or energy efficiency measures.
Fifteen communities will receive funding.
Projects which reduce use or increase recycling of plastics, and those actively taking part in carbon saving initiatives such as tree planting or increasing the use of electric vehicles are also encouraged to apply.
The deadline for applications is 12pm on the 19th October 2020.
