The Crerar Trust
Giving back to local communities to improve the quality of everyday lives is at the heart of Crerar Hotels – their motto is “Hotels with Heart and Soul” – and each year almost half of the hotel profits are entrusted to the Crerar Hotels Trust for distribution to charities and community projects local to Crerar Hotels throughout Scotland and Yorkshire. This year, following the success of the pilot scheme last year, Crerar Hotels have re-launched the Community Prize. This fund will again be awarded to a local community project which brings together young and old people in a meaningful way.
Consideration will be given to any proposal which will result in ongoing interaction between the generations in a community within one hour’s drive of any Crerar Hotel. The criteria are intentionally loose to allow communities to develop creative ideas which will work for them. Preference may be given to applications which aim to match funding provided and where there will be a lasting impact in the community. Each Crerar Hotel will have a community volunteer team who will act as the initial co-ordinators. Please contact your local Crerar Hotel should you have any questions about the Community Prize or see here.
There are no deadlines and applications can be made at any time.
