Do you know a local group that would benefit from a cash boost? If you do, be sure to advise them to apply to LTC’s 2018 Grant Aid fund of £20,000.
Continuing to support the Town’s local groups and charities through its annual scheme, Grant Aid’s application process opening on 1 April and closes on 11 May. Available to any charitable or not-for-profit club, group or organisation in Littlehampton, applicants need to demonstrate that their group benefits members of the community by offering cultural enrichment, advice or support, or by providing sporting activities. All applications are considered on the basis of merit, aims and objectives.
Councillor Ian Buckland Chair of the Town Council’s Community Resources Committee said: “The Town Council actively encourages groups and organisations to apply for grants. We recognise their needs and goals and wish to help this sector in achieving its objectives and hope to provide even more support by allocating a larger budget for grants this year.”
In 2017 LTC awarded grants to groups including 5th Littlehampton Sea Scouts for buoyancy aids and paddles, Littlehampton Heritage Railway Association for an accessible railway carriage and Safe in Sussex for carpets for the new refuge and drop-in centre.
