Estate agent offers new grants to village groups

Estate agents Jackson Grundy have raised more than £35,000 as part of its Community Support Initiative...and now they are looking to help groups in the Daventry area.

The company is rolling out the scheme across villages surrounding Daventry and they are asking for worthwhile beneficiaries to apply for inclusion.

Any non-profit group, project or charity, based in the following villages should apply – Braunston, Everdon, Newnham, Staverton, Welton, Willoughby, Preston Capes, Church Stowe, Farthingstone, Dodford and Badby. Beneficiaries have already been chosen for Weedon and Norton.

Nick Rees, group marketing and community support manager, said: “We need to know which local community groups are active in these villages so that we can integrate them into our CSI. We have been delighted with the success of the scheme in other areas and we are very excited about the potential to raise significant funds for projects close to the hearts of local residents. Villagers are also welcome to propose groups for consideration.”

In the first instance, please write to Nick Rees at Jackson Grundy, Gough Lodge, Main Road, Duston, Northampton, NN5 6JJ, or email at

Details of how the groups would utilise donations, and how they might be able to help promote the scheme, should be included.
