The speaker at the meeting of Kendal Rotary on 5th February was Dr Jenny Benson, the Philanthropy Officer for the Cumbria Community Foundation, who gave an informative presentation on the aims and workings of the organisation.

Better well known for its flood grants following the devastating effects of Storm Desmond in 2015, the Foundation in fact encompass many other functions and Dr Benson detailed all of them.

The Foundation’s mission is: “Cumbria Community Foundation exists to alleviate poverty and disadvantage and strengthen Cumbria’s communities by inspiring people who give money with impactful and potentially life-changing projects.”
