Successful organisations from the recent round of applications for grants the shop’s 2020 profits were:
8th Abingdon Rainbow Guide Unit
Dolphins Disabled Swimming Club
Friends of Radley Primary School
Friends of Radley Station
Radley Good Neighbours
Radley History Club
Radley Lakes Trust
Radley Retirement Group
The award of these annual grants was delayed this year because Covid restrictions on meetings meant we couldn’t hold the shop AGM until August 2021. Under the rules governing Radley Village Shop Association, its members need to approve at the AGM the giving of money from the profits in these grants. Such grants can only be awarded to organisations with a social or charitable purpose within the community served by the shop.
Members also voted at the AGM to set aside a further £1,000 for grants on request from local groups within the period up to the next AGM in May 2022.
