Craft Festival is a non-profit making social enterprise founded to bring greater prosperity to the the town of Bovey Tracey. Each year over 10,000 visitors and over 200 small businesses come to the town.
As a non-profit making company, if we have any surplus funds, we give money away to local charities. For many years we supported The Bovey Tracey Youth Café giving them, in excess of £8,000. Our director, Sarah James was also a Trustee for 5 years.
We are now opening out the opportunity to charities in the TQ13 9 and Heathfield postcode area to be supported by us via our Community Fund.
We will make 2 annual awards of a maximum of £500 each. Awards will be presented at the Craft Festival in June.

Applications are welcomed from Not-for-profit community groups, voluntary organisations and local charities (not branches of national charities) based in the TQ13 9 and Heathfield postcode area.

How much can I apply for?
What type of things can my group apply for?
Anything from equipment to event costs which would provide a clear benefit. We cannot accept applications retrospectively or reimburse costs for items already bought. We will favour projects that benefit wider communities, and not just one small group of individuals, and those that have longer term ambitions. We will favour creative projects that benefits the wider community.
