UW seeks applicants for second legacy grant

            Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre is bringing the live-theatre troupe “Sheatre”—and its interactive forum play about sexual assault and healthy relationships—to over 200 Kawartha Lakes students in Grades 8-12 on Oct. 27-8.

            The theatre project was funded by the first grant last year from Telecare Lindsay’s Mona Hall Legacy Fund, created by

the dissolution of Telecare Lindsay, and administered by the Kawartha Lakes United Way.

            Now the United Way is seeking applications for the fund’s second $5,000 grant—for a distinct project to “address an emerging or changing need in the City of Kawartha Lakes.” The deadline for submitting a Letter of Intent is noon on Oct. 24.

            A volunteer review team will look at the Letters of Intent and issue invitations to selected applicants who pass the prescreening process.

            The $30,000 fund is named after Mona Hall, a Lindsay resident who left a bequest to Lifeline Telecare Lindsay several years ago that helped establish Telecare’s Reassurance Calls program. When Telecare ceased operations it turned over some of its funds to United Way CKL, who is extending Mona Hall’s wishes through annual grants over approximately five years.

            “This bequest has special meaning as United Way CKL was the consistent funder of Telecare Lindsay,” says Penny Barton Dyke, Executive Director.

            You can get the Letter of Intent document by contacting United Way Executive Director Penny Barton Dyke at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 705-878-5081.

            For information about the Sheatre play, contact Lisa Clarke at 705-748-5901.
