Mark Wright, Managing Director at CALA Homes (Midlands) said: “CALA has always been committed to making a positive and lasting contribution to local communities through an active programme of charity donations, community support and sponsorship, and the Community Bursary scheme gives us the chance to find out exactly what support is needed locally.

“The response to the scheme has been overwhelming, and we’ve been delighted to hear from so many local charities, schools, community projects and good causes in Milton Keynes about the fantastic work that is being done. This is the first year we have launched the CALA Community Bursary in Milton Keynes, and we’re looking forward to working with each of our selected charities over the coming months and seeing how each of them use the funds to make a real difference in the work they do.

“We would like to thank everyone who took the time to apply to the CALA Community Bursary, and congratulate each of them on the valuable work they are doing within the local community.”

In 2019, the Community Bursary scheme will award more than £100,000 to 117 good causes across the UK. A further 200 causes have previously benefitted from the scheme, with £200,000 awarded to various initiatives since 2017.
