Community Foundation for Calderdale
https://cffc.co.uk/
The Community Foundation for Calderdale supports charities and voluntary groups across Calderdale, working alongside these groups to address inequalities and create opportunities for those who need them the most.

By investing in these groups through grants and loans, as well as sharing our expertise in the non-profit sector, we act as a catalyst for positive change in Calderdale.

Three times in the past 6 Years, Heath RUFC’s clubhouse at North Dean Greetland, has been overwhelmed by flood waters from the nearby River Calder and the waterway known locally as the “Black Brook Beck”. Each time this has caused major damage and the temporary closure of the facilities, with volunteers having to undertake a major clean-up exercise.

The Committee therefore took the decision to fit flood doors and flood proof flooring, throughout the ground floor areas.

Under normal circumstances the plan would have been to completely self-fund this, from monies generated internally, however, the onset of the Covid pandemic put paid to this, as Heath was subject to major financial constraints, along with many others in the area. So, we applied to the Community Foundation for Calderdale (CFFC), amongst others, for a grant to go someway to covering the costs and were delighted to be awarded £5,000 towards the renovations.

After receiving the grant, Community Liaison Officer, Steve Dawes said “We are extremely grateful for the support that the CFFC has given Heath, these improvements will ensure that our facilities remain available to the various groups who utilise the clubhouse. We hope to be moving forward soon once current restrictions are lifted”.

Flood doors and flood proof flooring have now been installed to the main entrance, changing rooms and the cellar/boiler room.
