Warrenpoint Port is committed to supporting the Community in which it operates. Every Christmas it offers a Community Christmas Fund. The Port team, customers and stakeholders raise money throughout the year to be added into the Fund. Local organisations from schools and playgroups to charities and voluntary groups can apply to the fund to receive support in the lead up to Christmas.
The core objective of the fund changes each year to reflect the needs of the local community.
Each application is reviewed on its merits before the fund is allocated. Applicants are asked to confirm in 200 words or less how they meet the criteria and how much they are requesting.
In 2020 more than £12,000 was donated to 23 different organisations. In 2021 more than £22,000 was donated to 43 different organisations.
The scheme is currently closed but will reopen in November 2022.
