The Bullingdon Community Association is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit organisation. The main source of income for the community centre is generated by letting out space to community groups and for private events, such as children’s parties. So our main source of support and income is the community we serve. But we also benefit from some other sources of support.
Oxford Lottery: Did you know that you can support the Bullingdon Community Centre by joining the Oxford Lottery?
The Oxford Lottery is a weekly online lottery to help local charities and community groups. The Community Centre is one of the nominated charities. Players can enter for a chance to win a jackpot of up to £25,000, whist nominating their favourite charity as beneficiaries. Visit the Oxford Lottery website to buy tickets and play the game. A single ticket costs £1 and 60p of your ticket goes directly to good causes. Nominated charities receive 50p, with 10p going to the Oxford City Community Fund. The draw takes place every Saturday night and the results are posted on the Oxford City website.
Grants: Grants also provide a useful source of income and, over the last eight months, we have managed to secure three awards amounting to £10,000.
£1000 was received from the Oxford City Councils ‘Community Impact Fund’, which was used to help set up our new website.
£3,000 was received from the County Councils ‘Connected Communities Fund’, which is currently being used to support and promote activities for older people at the community centre.
£6,000 has recently been received from the Councillor Priority Fund which is allocated to County Councillor Liz Brighouse. This grant is being spent on equipment and fitments for the new community centre (e.g. blinds for the main hall, new tables and chairs, dishwater and microwave for the kitchen).
Thanks to the City and County Council for their support.
