Final week to vote in the Aviva Community Fund

Aviva Community Fund

The votes are flooding in to support local sports clubs and community causes in their bid for funding from the Aviva Community Fund! We recently heard from Aviva Premiership Rugby stars about the importance of grassroots sports clubs, and now it’s your chance to make a real difference to a local club, project or cause close to your heart.

Owen Farrell, Ben Youngs, Danny Care, Courtney Lawes, Elliot Daly and other international players shared memories of their earlier years, discussed how they fell in love with rugby and why they started playing the game, all to help support and raise awareness of the Aviva Community Fund. Bonds with their former coaches and teammates were revealed in a series of films and players explained how grassroots clubs helped them to achieve their dreams of becoming professional sportsmen.

Every vote counts, so make sure you cast yours by noon on 18 November 2016. You can search for a particular project, or by location or category, to find projects that matter to you. Just search for ‘Aviva Community Fund’ or visit aviva.co.uk/community-fund to make a positive difference to your community.

Aviva are giving funds ranging from £1,000 to £25,000 to the projects that clock up the most votes and capture the judges’ attention.

Last year the Aviva Community Fund benefitted more than 320,000 people through 431 winning projects, clubs and causes across the UK. This year there are nearly double the number of awards available, so even more chances to get funding.

If you don’t have a local club or cause nominated for this year’s Fund, why don’t you register your interest for next year?

Good luck and thanks for your support!
