E.ON is encouraging charities and community groups in Cambridgeshire to apply for up to £2,000 of funding through its Energising Communities Fund.

To be eligible, organisations need to submit a request which supports activities that help bring about a reduction in their own energy use, help generate energy from a renewable source, or provide energy efficiency advice for local people.

Suzanne Doxey, community relations manager at E.ON, said: “Since launching our fund in 2013, we’ve distributed over £140,000 to fund energy-related projects at almost 85 community groups nationwide.

“We’ve loved hearing about the benefits the groups and their wider communities have experienced as a result of the funding, from lower energy bills and increased efficiency to educating the local community and providing them with energy-saving resources.

““We’re hoping that more Cambridgeshire community groups and charities will take up this opportunity to apply for funding as we look forward to reviewing all the applications received and supporting more local initiatives with the fund.”

Groups can apply for funding of up to £2,000. The application deadline is Monday January 29. Visit eonenergy.com/community
