Our 2020 Community Fund is now open!
The Sheffield Mutual Community Fund is now in it’s sixth year, the main aim of the initiative is to make funds available for donations to small local charities, community groups and voluntary organisations.
Since the Community Fund launched back in 2014, we have donated to a variety of different charities and community groups including: Sheffield Mencap & Gateway, Barnsley Youth Choir and Whirlow Hall Farm Trust.

Chief Executive, Jamie Bellamy is keen to keep the momentum going and continue with Sheffield Mutual’s commitment to helping good causes. He said:
“Our Community Fund is now in its sixth year. It’s great that we can help smaller, local charities and see first-hand the benefit our funding makes.”
