Applying for a donation
If your Berry community group needs some assistance in the way of a donation for a new piece of equipment or team jumpers etc. please write to us describing an amount and what it is for. See our contact details.
if it is for more than a small sum then some supporting documentation – bank statements and or financial statements for the last 12 months; project budget projection etc. and the Committee will review and consider it.
Cafe & restaurant vouchers
We also provide cafe and restaurant vouchers to many community groups for their trivia and other fundraising events as prizes or auction items. These vouchers are collected from local restaurants, cafes and caterers in payment for their listing in the Town Crier each month. They get good publicity with the particular community group and their supporters as well as their advertising exposure in the Town Crier.
For cafe or restaurant vouchers just contact us with your event or fundraiser details and we should be able to assist with some vouchers. Please remember, your community group must be registered with us in the Town Crier to be eligible. Learn how to register and download the application form.
Ideas and initiatives to help preserve the beauty and sustainability of our environment, including recycling, reducing electricity usage, plastic bag use, shared pathways around Berry and more.
One of our primary roles is to support Berry Community Groups. We do this by offering monthly articles in the Town Crier. Community groups can use this to: promote membership, rally support from the Berry community for their fundraising endeavours or simply to let the community know what they are up to.
