Deadline: 31 July 2022

Location: North Yorkshire

Two Ridings are inviting local community groups from North Yorkshire to take part in this year’s High Sheriff’s Dragons Den, on the 20 October 2022 in Leyburn. We want you to showcase the work you do to secure unrestricted funding of between £3,000 – £7,000 from a generous £30,000 pot.

If you are based in North Yorkshire and are happy to do a short, 4 minute presentation, simply say:

  • Who you are
  • What you do
  • What you need funding for
  • Why it matters

Last year Sight Support Ryedale extended their transport support through the £7,000 awarded to them, so people in the remotest areas can reach them, get support and socialise. This year, Dragons’ Den will be held at Tennants of Leyburn hosted by Jamie Lambert the North Yorkshire High Sheriff of 2022. There will be a friendly audience of influential Yorkshire people supporting all the charities at this exciting event.

As well as the opportunity to secure some funding – all presenting groups take a share of at least a £30k pot, no one goes away empty handed – you get the chance to meet, network and share your stories with key players in the region, raising your profile and bringing your project to life. It’s a great way to showcase the impact grassroots organisations have on local people region-wide. Local radio and press will be fully briefed too, giving you a platform for media coverage and further profile raising.
