Twelve local charities and community organisations have benefitted from a giveaway through Red Kite Community Housing.

The High Wycombe-based company set up the initiative last month where they asked a dozen causes what they would do if they were given £100.

After several submissions, 12 charities were picked out of a hat at random and were given the money.

The competition was run through Red Kite’s Facebook, X (formerly known as Twitter) and Instagram pages during December.

Aasia Nisar, Head of Resident and Community Engagement, said “We had entries from people across the district, including lots of groups we’ve not previously worked with or funded.

“This has given us a great opportunity to open up relationships with people who, like us, are working to realise the potential in our communities.

“We’re looking forward to working with all the groups who entered and do more with them in 2024.

“We plan to reach out to every organisation that has participated with details of our Springboard and Starting Blocks funding streams and other community activities that might benefit them.”
