incredibly proud of the contributions from the BAE Systems workforce whose regular
donations directly support the community in the Furness area.”

pandemic, and really need everyone’s support.”
To apply, charities need to complete and submit an application form via e-mail, stating they
are a local registered charity and providing their charity number. Applicants also need to
state the amount they are hoping to secure, as well as an outline of how the money will be
