The Brill Community Fund

Supporting community projects in Brill since 2003


About the Brill Community Fund

The Brill Community Fund exists to financially support, in a modest way, exclusively local projects that, in as much as is possible, can be seen to enhance the wellbeing of the whole community and its facilities.

Where does the money come from?

Over the years, the bulk of the income has come from another community co-operative, The Brill and Bernwode Oil Buying Club.

The supplying oil companies pay a bulk buying commission and it is this commission that currently supplies the majority of funds to Brill Community Fund.

Where does the money go?

A range of projects have benefitted from grants made by the fund. These include:

  • All Saints Church Fabric Fund
  • Brill Memorial and Book of the Fallen
  • Brill Radio
  • Brill Village Community Herd
  • Brill Festival
  • Brill Palace and Iron Age Hillfort surveys
  • Brill Common (FOBC)
  • Brill Jubilee Festival
  • Brill Scout hut repairs
  • Brill Youth Shelter
  • Brill School PTA Marquee
  • The Library at Brill URC
  • Brill Green Christmas Tree
  • Brill Community Cinema
  • Brill & Bernwode Community Bus
  • Ambroise Farm Forest School
  • 'The Kings at Brill' book
  • Brill Playground
  • Brill Windmill repairs
  • Defibrillator at Brill Sports & Social Club
