Cosyfeet Community Award

The Cosyfeet Community Award offers a one-off donation of up to £500 to registered charities or not-for-profit organisations and clubs who are working on local projects within the UK that support and enrich the lives of older people.

There are 2 awards of up to £500 available – one for projects operating within Somerset (which is where Cosyfeet is based) and one for projects operating outside of the county.

We are particularly interested in projects that provide practical and emotional help, keep older people active or give them a chance to meet up with others- anything that may help older people feel less isolated and more involved in their community.

If you would like to apply for the award, please submit the form below by 31st July 2017. If your club or charity wins the award you will need to provide images for promotional purposes at the point of winning and at a later stage in the year. Open to UK residents only. Judge’s decision is final. By entering the Cosyfeet Community Award you are consenting to us using your name on our website and other marketing materials and publishing articles about your group and how you use the award.

YAMA, an over 60s dance performance company based in Bath, is this year’s winner of the Cosyfeet Community Award for Somerset. The £500 award will be used to help fund transport to dance events around the country. YAMA Dance attracts a range of members in their 60s and 70s who either danced in their youth or who are learning to dance for the first time. This highly successful group was established to fill an opportunity gap for mature dancers.

Clients can write their ‘dream’ on the ‘Dream Wall’ and the charity does its best to fulfil it. Past ‘dreams’ have included a visit to the cinema, a shopping trip and a horse riding lesson.
