The Windsor Lion Launch their Lion’s Den Challenge
A challenge to youth and senior groups in the Windsor area to present community initiatives for substantial financial support - £8,000 to be won!
Lion’s Den Challengeaims to create sustainable projects that will directly benefit the local community. The concept is based on the highly popular TV programme, ‘Dragon’s Den’, where budding entrepreneurs seeking financial investment present their business initiatives for scrutiny by multi-millionaires. Youth and senior groups will be invited to present their ideas to a panel of prominent local business people, headed by the President of Windsor Lions, which will judge their proposals and make financial rewards to the winning projects.
A Community Project should be a project (new or existing) which benefits either the wider community, or a group of individuals within the community. The competition is divided into two categories: Junior teams with all members 18 years old and under prior to 31st December 2017, or senior teams with members over 18 years old. The competition is available for small local community groups, and small local charities based in any of the following: Windsor, Ascot, Datchet, Eton, Old Windsor, Sunningdale, Sunninghill, or Wraysbury.
Four prizes each upto £2,000 will be presented to two winners in each category for the further development of their projects.
Applicants should contact Lion Mike Sells: firstname.lastname@example.org to register their interest by Tuesday 31st October 2017. The winners will be announced before Christmas.
