Win £1,000 for a Berkshire charity!

Three £1,000 prizes are up for grabs as Berkshire Community Foundation (BCF) launches their 2018 Vital Signs survey. BCF are asking people in Berkshire to spend five minutes giving their opinion of life in the county. You can then nominate a charity to win one of the prizes.

Now in its fifth year, the Vital Signs survey is used to uncover the hidden areas of deprivation within Berkshire. This enables BCF to produce a ‘health-check’ report prioritising need and the areas for action.

This year the focus is on a safe home, good health and secure employment as the foundations of wellbeing. The results drive BCFs fundraising.

Last year Mental Health was identified as the major issue. £250,000 was raised to fund vital projects improving the mental health of adults and children.

Gerry Lejeune, Chief Executive of BCF said “This is a fantastic opportunity for local people, with local knowledge to influence our fundraising for the next year.”
