Community Grants

Supporting community development in St Germans

Every year the profits from the St Germans Community Shop are distributed through a grants process to local groups and organisations. Last year we granted over £5000 to 11 local organisations so you can shop with us in the confidence that every penny of profit from your local spend is donated back into your local community and it makes a real difference!  Thank you!

"St Germans Community shop has been a huge help in the purchasing of equipment through the community grants that they offer. St Germans Youth Project is a NON-FUNDED project that relies on the support of our community. The shop have continued to support the projects by considering the wish lists of the young people and provide them with the much needed equipment to turn the Eliot Hall into a vibrant, fun and safe environment. The equipment purchased through these grants are often used in the wider community such as fundraisers and parties and often bridging the generation gap in our community."


"The Reception Team at Quay Lane Surgery wish to say a huge "Thank you" to the St Germans Community Shop for our lovely warm cardigans, it is greatly appreciated.

Thank you again on behalf of the Patient Participation Group for your kindness and generosity in such difficult times. We understood that this was an unusual request for use of this grant and despite this, it was approved by you all in kindness and to show your support for our wonderful practice." 

"1st St Germans Rainbows and Brownies are part of the national Girl Guiding organisation. We do many things to encourage both life and transferable skills in a fun and safe environment.  Although Girl Guiding is a national charity – each unit must fundraise and hold their own accounts.

The community shop has offered us grants over the years to allow us to purchase endless amounts of crafting equipment, outdoor forest school equipment, discovery and STEM toys  facilitating both independent development and growth as a unit."
