The Crawley Observer and Hilton London Gatwick Airport have teamed up with the DM Thomas Foundation for Young People to help give away £10,000 to charities big and small throughout the local area.
Running from today to October 10 local charities, schools and clubs that help children across the borough have the opportunity to apply for a share of £10,000.
A spokesman for the hotel said: “The money was raised by our dedicated Foundation supporter at Hilton London Gatwick Airport, so we want to ensure that all of their hard work will go to benefit the young people of the local area.
The Giveaway is aimed at helping those organisations who work hard to improve young lives, often with tight resources. With the help of the The Crawley Observer and the team at Hilton London Gatwick Airport, the Foundation will be able to identify local charities and causes that need our help.”
Now in their seventh year, the Giveaways have seen more than £211,000 donated to 20 different local organisations. Outdoor learning, arts and crafts materials, travel costs, sports equipment, specialist and crisis counselling, therapy and cancer care, refurbishments and resource packs have all be funded through Giveaways, enabling more than 38,543 young people to benefit directly.
