Volunteers urged to bid for grants

VOLUNTARY groups in the Daventry district are being invited to apply for financial aid from Northamptonshire County Council’s small grants fund.

Since its launch in 2006, the scheme has kick-started around 300 youth projects and initiatives in the county.

A new round of funding is now open and the council is inviting applications for contributions of up to £10,000.

Cabinet member for children and young people Andrew Grant said: “The scheme has proved extremely popular and the money has been used to set up hundreds of wide-ranging initiatives and projects benefiting young people.”

Any organisation interested can call 01604 236236 or email customerservices@northamptonshire.gov.uk.
