Dragons’ Den 2019: Win £2,000 for your favourite local charity

Bramhall and Woodford Rotary invites charities and local good causes to enter the Dragons’ Den and win up to £2000.

If your organisation is based in postcodes SK1 to SK8 you can apply. You will need to fill in an application form (click here) and, if selected, present your case in person at an event on Wednesday 13 March 2019 at Woodford Community Centre. The evening will be conducted in a manner similar to the business investment TV programme Dragons’ Den.

To be successful organisations will need to demonstrate the impact of their work on the local area, good governance and passion for their cause.

On the night:

The Dragons will share a total of £5000 amongst the winning charities/good causes. The awards will be:

First award £2000
Second award £1000
Third award £500
Any remaining awards will be £300 each.

The venue for Dragons’ Den 2019 is Woodford Community Centre, Chester Road, Woodford, Stockport, Cheshire. SK7 1PS.

The event will start at 7.30pm (doors open 6.30pm). There will be a cash bar open before the event, during the interval and the judging.

One representative of each organisation will make a short presentation of no more than five minutes. No visual aids or technology can be used. This will then be followed by five minutes of questions from the Dragons. All the finalists can bring along up to five supporters to the event.

Applications to enter the Den are open now and close at midnight on Wednesday 13 February 2019. There is no cost to enter.


Charities who work locally but which are based outside of postcodes SK1 to SK8 should not apply.

Only make one application per group.

The Awards will be announced and presented on the night. The decision of the Dragons and Bramhall & Woodford Rotary Club is final.
