Ashfield Community Fund 2020 now open for applications!
Are you a small community group who delivers a project in Ashfield? The Ashfield Community Fund is back to support you!
Now open for applications, grants are once again available from £500 up to £1,000.
A massive £10,000 was awarded to 17 different community groups across Ashfield in 2019.
A further £10,000 was allocated to 12 groups this year who responded to support the Covid-19 emergency situation.
Ashfield District Council is now offering a further £10,000 of community grants and wants to hear from eligible Ashfield groups.
The Council is committed to supporting the voluntary sector and Cllr Kier Barsby, Portfolio Holder for Health and Leisure is looking forward to seeing the applications roll in.
He said: “If it wasn’t for groups such as the ones we supported last year, our communities would not be as strong as they are. It makes me very proud to be able to support these people who put in so much effort and time for these projects.
“I am pleased that we are once again able to be there to help, especially financially as small amounts can go a long way in making a difference.”
Nottinghamshire Community Foundation opened the fund on 17 August 2020 and the closing date is 11 October 2020.
