Summer/Winter Grants

Summer and winter grants are funded by Sargent Electrical, a family-run business and major partner of the HEY Smile Foundation. They see the true value in our approach to community engagement. The grants provide a large number of local groups with the funding they needed to deliver services across Beverley and the surrounding areas.

Here are some local charities/community groups they’ve supported:
