Bosses of SW Car Supermarket, based in Fengate, hopes causes across the city will apply for the funding which is being given away as part of the company’s Share With campaign.

The used car specialist has vowed to give away £500 every three months to charities in Peterborough and the surrounding area.

Through its previous two rounds of Share With funding, the group has given Families First Peterborough and Bearded Villains East Anglia each a £500 grant.

This April, other local charities and community causes wishing to be considered for the £500 grant are encouraged to apply online and have until May 7 to submit their applications.

The winning cause will be selected by a panel of SW Car Supermarket employees, including the company’s Operations Director, John Marshall, and chief executive, Anton Khan.

Mr Khan said: “We aim to support small local charities and causes in our community to help those most in need.

“It’s important for us to reinvest back into the city of Peterborough - a place where we’ve operated for almost 12 years now and a community that’s very close to our hearts.

“Our share With application process is now open and we look forward to awarding a worthy cause with £500 very soon.”
