The successful charity will join forces with the Airport for the duration of 2016 - 2017.
The gateway's current partnership with Sue Ryder will come to an end this year and it is seeking to build a similarly fruitful relationship with a new charity for two years.
Over the course of a four year partnership with Sue Ryder, London Luton's staff, partners and passengers raised over £180,000 for this great cause.
It is open to working with any charities which meet the stipulated criteria and are aligned with the Airport’s Community Engagement Strategy (CES), focusing on three core areas: protecting the environment, building sustainable communities, and contributing to economic growth.
London Luton Airport (LLA) is looking for a charity that is active in the local area, has a proactive approach and the ambition to deliver creative campaigns that put the fun into fundraising.
It insists that it is committed to supporting the charity sector and that the official charity partnership is just one way in which it supports the local community.
The London Luton Airport Community Trust fund, for example, provides donations to local organisations and community groups throughout the Three Counties, with over £50,000 distributed over the course of last year.
And LLA’s ‘Get Into Airports’ programme, run jointly with the Prince’s Trust to offer training and work experience, also helped over 90 local young people into employment at the Airport and within its supply chain.
The closing date for applications is Friday 31st July.
Application forms and criteria can be downloaded from our community website. www.london-lutoninthecommunity.co.uk
The airport is askig for all completed forms to be sent in confidence to Chika Austin by email or post: or London Luton Airport, Navigation House, Airport Way, Luton, Beds, LU2 9LY.
More details of how LLA works to support the local community can be found in our 2014 Community Engagement Report.
