Community grant funding up for grabs

Frome Community Trust has announced that applications are now open for grants for community organisations and groups in Frome and the local villages. 

A total of about £4,500 is available, raised entirely by the proceeds of the Frome Community Lottery.

Grants are typically given for between £200 and £2,000 and are meant for the development of community facilities in the area.

Last year the lottery supported many diverse organisations, from Wesley Church to the Frome Bowling Club, from Positive Action on Cancer to the Day Centre and the Frome Festival.

Chair of the Trust, Sue Worringham said, “All the money we are able to give out comes from the proceeds of the Frome Community Lottery.

“We are extremely grateful to all the local residents who play the community lottery every week, as 50% of their weekly stake of £1 comes back to Frome to support local groups. They also have a chance to win cash prizes of up to £25,000.”

Players who wish to join the lottery can pick up a leaflet at Frome library or join through the Trust’s website.

Grant application forms, which must be returned by Thursday 23rd  April, are available from the Trust’s website –  www.fromecommunitytrust.btck.co.uk or from Sue Worringham on 01373  462431.
