Lyle's Local Fund

​About the fund

A £25,000 community fund, The Lyle’s Local Fund, has been set up by Tate & Lyle Sugars, and administered in partnership with the London Borough of Newham, to support projects that help to create local communities in Newham that are safe, prosperous and healthy.

Grants of up to £2,500 will be available, and the community fund is open to not-for-profit organisations, such as social enterprises, schools, charities and community groups, who are based in Newham and whose work benefits the residents of Newham.

Tate & Lyle Sugars has a long history of supporting the local community of Newham, dating back to the 19th Century and the philanthropy of co-founders Henry Tate and Abram Lyle. Today, The Lyle’s Local Fund complements the company’s existing community engagement programme of support for local charities, volunteering and in-kind support.
