Guernsey charities are being reminded that they have until Friday 12 April 2013 to apply to be the main beneficiary of this year’s Harbour Carnival.

The event, which is sponsored by RBC Wealth Management and organised by the Guernsey Round Table, will take place on Friday 9 August 2013 and the main beneficiary will receive 50% of the amount raised, with the other 50% going to other local good causes.

Du Preez Vermeulen, Vice President of the Guernsey Round Table said “we’ve already had a number of entries but would encourage those charities that haven’t submitted applications to do so.”

“Last year, a record-breaking £24,000 was raised, so we’re talking about quite a large sum of money that could really make a real difference to the chosen charity,” he said.

Applicants should write via email to Shaun Gourley, President of the Guernsey Round Table at [email protected], stating their Association of Guernsey Charities membership number, the nature of their charity, how they would use the funding and the resources they could provide to help with fundraising.

The closing date from funding applications is Friday 12 April, 2013.
