Northamptonshire Community Foundation named as Carlsberg UK’s Charity of the Year

Carlsberg UK have chosen Northamptonshire Community Foundation as their new charity partner to launch their Carlsberg UK Better Fund.

The new Carlsberg UK Better Fund will be managed by Northamptonshire Community Foundation and offer grants between £250 and £3,000 for projects that will support local voluntary and community groups in Northampton.

Julian Momen, Carlsberg UK CEO said: “I’m delighted to announce the Carlsberg UK Better Fund which we have recently set up with Northamptonshire Community Foundation. The named fund reflects our company purpose of ‘Brewing for a Better Today and Tomorrow’. Through the partnership we will be able to make a lasting impact on the groups that require much needed support within our local community.”

In December 2017, Carlsberg UK donated £10,000 to the charity’s Surviving Winter Appeal from the proceeds of their locally produced Carlsberg Christmas Brew.

Victoria Miles DL CEO, of Northamptonshire Community Foundation said: “Thanks to our initial partnership with Carlsberg during our Surviving Winter appeal, we are delighted to be able to continue our relationship and look forward to working with them to provide much needed support to the community groups and projects in Northampton.”

The Northamptonshire Community Foundation works with a range of corporates, fund holders and donors to ensure projects make a sustainable impact on local needs, helping donors make the most of their charitable giving.
