Fourteen community groups across Norfolk, north Suffolk and east Cambridgeshire are celebrating after learning that they are to share in a combined £21,000 windfall, following the latest round of grants from Lovewell Blake’s LB150 Fund.

The money was raised over the past 12 months by staff and partners at the leading regional chartered accountants, business advisers and financial planners.

A wide range of charities, voluntary groups and community organisations have received grants ranging from £940 to £2,000, to assist a variety of community activities. The grants were decided by a panel of Lovewell Blake staff, assisted by the Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire Community Foundations, which administer the LB 150 Fund.

Organisations receiving grants were:


“We are delighted to be able to support so many wonderful organisations which are doing such great work in our communities,” said Gary Flatt, Lovewell Blake’s CSR partner. “Community groups like these are the glue which binds our communities, and that is why our staff and partners participate so enthusiastically in our fundraising efforts across the year.

“It is these smaller, possibly less well-known organisations working at grassroots level in our communities which make such a difference, and the success of our fundraising means that we have been able to give out more in grants this year than last.”


Lovewell Blake’s LB150 Fund was originally set up in 2008 as part of the firm’s 150th anniversary celebrations, with the aim of raising £150,000 for local charities and community groups in five years. The firm announced earlier this year that its ongoing fundraising efforts had seen the Fund exceed the £200,000 mark since its foundation.
