DELTA Centre, Carlow has this week been shortlisted to share in a fund of €100,000.
The much-loved centre was nominated recently for the Aviva Broker Community Fund by Alan Whelan of Hooper Dolan Insurances Ltd, Carlow and will find out at a virtual ceremony this Friday if it will be among the event’s top winners.
The Aviva Broker Community Fund provides an opportunity for financial advisers/brokers throughout the country to help local charities or community organisations that are making a difference in their area.
The fund, which was launched last September, has €100,000 to donate to 30 worthwhile projects, including €20,000 to the best submission, plus four runners-up amounts of €5,000 to the shortlisted charities.
Three local organisations will receive €10,000 for the best submissions, plus two donations of €5,000 to those shortlisted community organisations, along with €1,000 to 20 charities and community organisations which were not shortlisted.
As the Delta Centre is one of five charities shortlisted, it is therefore guaranteed to receive a minimum donation of €5,000 but, fingers crossed, they can be among Friday’s big winners.
