Frome Lottery invites applications for grants

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

Representatives of organisations who have received a recent grant from Frome Community Lottery, taken at the 21st birthday celebration in October.

They say, “A total of about £5,000 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 local area.  

“Last year the Community Lottery was able to support local organisations with several projects including the refurbishment of the Merlin Theatre foyer, exhibition panels for the Frome Festival, a new website for the Memorial Theatre and PPE for Fair Frome volunteers. 

“None of this would have been possible without the lottery supporters who play the community lottery every week, as 50% of their weekly stake of £1 comes back to Frome to support local groups.  

“Players also have a chance to win cash prizes of up to £25,000.  Local residents who wish to join the lottery can do so through the Trust’s website. 

Applications for grant funding should be made via the Trust’s website: https://fromecommunitylottery.org.uk   

Applications are now open until the closing date of 31st March 2022.
