The Durrants Charitable Foundation was set up in 2016 to support local community and charity projects. Since its launch we have supported some wonderful projects including the work of East Anglian Air Ambulance; YANA, a rural mental health charity and Clinks Care Farm near Beccles, which provides disadvantaged people the opportunities to work and learn a variety of agricultural roles including working with livestock, carpentry, market gardening and more.
The funding for Durrants Charitable Foundation is primarily from George Durrant and Sons Limited, but our team is also involved in various fund raising activities throughout the year including such things as Christmas card sales, raffles and even jazz evenings. We are also fortunate enough to have the generous support of many of our clients, who are asked to make donations where appropriate.

A fund of £20,000 is available to support local charities and community projects in 2021 and applications for grants of up to £2,000 are open until 31st March.
