About the fund

Since 2019, we have invested around £150,000 in local projects through the Community Chest Fund. This has included support for the local food banks, activities and projects run by community groups, as well as training opportunities and much more.  

Some of the projects we’ve granted funding to include:

Runcorn Amateur Boxing Club 

ABC is the town’s only boxing club, first established in the 1960’s.  They aim to provide people with the chance to improve their physical and mental health by utilising their facilities, whether that’s by them wanting to learn to box, or just to keep fit and train, to find out more visit the Runcorn Amateur Boxing Club website here.
