Grants available to fund community events
15 February 2019
Community groups planning fundraising events over the next two months are being urged to apply for a grant from Daventry District Council (DDC).
The Council offers grants of up to £500 to help local groups and good causes cover the costs of putting on community events.
It has awarded more than £10,000 to a range of different groups across the District this financial year, leaving around £3,500 in the pot.
Groups planning events before 31 March are invited to submit applications as soon as possible.
Applicants must demonstrate they have support from their local town or parish council and must also have some funding towards the event. The deadline for applications in this financial year is 28 February 2019.
DDC awards tens of thousands of pounds of grants to dozens of community and voluntary organisations across Daventry District each year.
For more information about the range of Community Grants offered by DDC, including the eligibility criteria for each grant, visit www.daventrydc.gov.uk/communitygrants or phone 01327 871100.
