The company that owns Slough Trading Estate this week launched a new £85,000 Community Fund to support good causes in the area.

The SEGRO Community Fund provides funding for charities across London and Thames Valley which help young and disadvantaged people into work. It has awarded a total of £340,000 to date.

But a wider range of charities in Slough will be able to apply for funding of up to £5,000. Previous beneficiaries have included the Adult Dyslexia Centre, which supports adults with dyslexia across Slough and Berkshire.

Neil Impiazzi, Partnership Development Director, SEGRO said: “The SEGRO Community Fund has enabled us to support 53 local charities and 2,300 people to date and we look forward to building on the support we are providing communities across the Thames Valley and London.”

The fund is now open for applications and will close on Friday, June 28. Visit
