Grants awarded by Frome lottery

Frome Community Lottery handed out around £3,000 to local organisations at its annual grant presentation evening this month.

Grants were awarded to  Foreground, the Frome Festival, Positive Action on Cancer, Frome Independent, Jack in the Box Toy Library, Young People Frome and The Pod Youth Club.

Sue Worringham, chair of the community lottery said, “It would be great if we were able to give grants to more local organisations. They all do such excellent work towards making Frome such a good place to live. This will only be possible if more local people join the lottery, so please consider joining. You might even win some prizes!”

Grant funding comes entirely from the proceeds of the Frome Lottery. Participants spend £1 a week with the chance of winning cash prizes of up to £25,000. Of this, 50% is available to support community groups in the Frome area. Joining forms are available from Frome library or on the Trust’s website or by calling  Sue on 01373 462431.
