The Community Matters Partnership Project (CMPP) is a local project, completely funded and managed by local organisations to enable them to work together to make a difference in the community. CMPP are delighted to announce the membership of two new partners.

First, Grainger PLC has swept CMPP up on the offer to become a partner. Carla Norton, Community Development Manager at Grainger PLC for Wellesley, said: “We are very proud to become a member of the Community Matters Partnership Project and look forward to working with likeminded organisations in Rushmoor to grow communities through working together. We are excited to be involved in the Partnership’s great initiatives to create a positive impact on the community, environment and local economy.”

Next, Janice Samuels of Enterprise Rent-A-Car relates how her organisation decided to join CMPP after hearing about the positive work of the partnership and the huge impact it is having on the development of the community in and around Rushmoor. “Every business that wants to thrive recognises how important it is to engage with the local community and I am confident that, by being part of CMPP,  Enterprise Rent-A-Car will be able to do this successfully.”

Christine Eustace, CMPP Project Manager is “delighted about the arrival of these two new businesses which pushes the number of CMPP partners and associates up to 25. Our continued growth will allow us to fundraise, skills share and broker more volunteering projects and community links throughout the coming year, enabling us to work more closely with a wider range of projects”.

2016 has seen CMPP work with local schools, charities and not for profit organisations funded by the Youth Aspirations Fund (YAF) including: ‘Girls into STEM’, ‘Fab Cafe Work Experience’, ‘Peer Productions tour of ‘High’’ and ‘Ready Steady Cook’. See CMPP’s website for further information: www.cmpp.org.uk.

Jenna Grant, Project Coordinator and Operations Manager of CMPP, said: “We are thrilled to have two new partners on board with us. New partners means fresh ideas and ways of looking at fundraising throughout the coming year. The extra pairs of hands will go a long way through 2017. I am thoroughly excited to work alongside Janice and Carla and hope that the partnership keeps growing in both numbers and quality!”.

The CMP Project is based at The Sixth Form College Farnborough and is managed by the College on behalf of the CMPP Partners.  To find out more about their outstanding work, please visit: www.cmpp.org.uk
