Need community funds?
LOCAL people are being given the chance to be granted up to £500 for deserving good causes.
Members of the Lions Club serving Kettering, Burton Latimer and the surrounding villages are aiming to help by introducing a new funding scheme.
President Malcolm Harris said: “We raise money, most of which is donated locally, to help charities, clubs and organisations. We are proud to announce our new Community Funding Scheme, offering four grants of up to £500 each, to deserving local organisations.
“Last year, one of our members walked from Land’s End to John o’ Groats and raised more than £12,000, which was split between Cransley Hospice and our Kettering & District Lions Club – enabling us to initiate this community grant scheme. If this pilot scheme is successful, we hope to make it an annual event.”
If you have a project, either new or existing, needing funds, apply by calling: 0845 833 5862 (local rate). The closing date for applications is Sunday May 22. Malcolm added: “Our motto is We Serve – can we help serve your organisation?”
