Cambridgeshire Community Foundation (CCF)

The official charity for Chariots of Fire 2018. Many local young people in Cambridgeshire face real difficulties because of poor mental health, bereavement, long term illness or disability.  Others have limited support and opportunity to develop and flourish because of the low aspirations or very limited income of their families.

CCF is a local grant making charity that provides support to hundreds of community groups and voluntary groups across the county. Every year Cambridgeshire Community Foundation raises funds for the Cambridgeshire High Sheriff’s Awards rewarding projects that enable young people to gain new skills and confidence, such that they can volunteer in their community for the benefit of others.

How your support will make a difference:

By fundraising for CCF the Cambridgeshire High Sheriff’s Awards will help provide opportunities that give local young people an appetite to achieve more for themselves, and perhaps set the young person off in a new direction.

So we invite you to “run a mile (well actually 1.7miles) and help create a new path for a young person”.
