Fundraising opportunity : Gigaclear

There is a general offer of financial support from Gigaclear for fund-raising events and other activities which benefit the community.

The sales team at Gigaclear has told the Parish Council that its Marketing Department might be prepared to consider – in exchange for publicity – providing financial support for community “events and activity”, such as sponsorship for fund-raising events.

This will probably be on a ‘first come first served’ basis, so Holcot community groups that rely on fund-raising are encouraged to contact Gigaclear ASAP.

To find out more details on their conditions, criteria for eligibility, and what info you might need to provide, please make initial contact at marketing@gigaclear.com . 

Northamptonshire : New authorities

The Future Northants West website is now available.

These are the package choices:

If you have NOT previously registered an interest in Gigaclear’s broadband, but might now be interested, the ball is in your court : you just need to contact them by email or phone (see below). However, if you’ve previously registered an interest with them, they will contact you anyway.
