Grant Funding for Community Groups

Community groups urged to contact local councillors about grant funding

Community groups in Charnwood are being urged to contact their local councillor to help them access grant funding for projects.

The member grants scheme is run by Charnwood Borough Council and enables each borough councillor to award up to £1,000 to projects in their ward each year.

Cllr Jonathan Morgan, leader of the Council said: "The member grants scheme helps spread funding to projects right across Charnwood, in each ward. More »

"We want to encourage groups who are making a positive contribution to their community to contact their local councillor about the grants."

The Forest Road Greenbelt Gardeners has been awarded a total of £750 from three different councillors. The funding has been used towards carving a story telling seat from a dead standing oak tree in Forest Road. The seat has been created in memory of Loughborough in Bloom stalwart Harry Cook.

Cllr Richard Bailey, who represents the Outwoods ward and awarded £250 to the project said "The Forest Road Greenbelt Gardeners help to maintain a wonderful green space in my ward which I know is appreciated by many residents.

"Harry Cook was well thought of in the local community and I was happy to support this project with part of my grant to create a lasting feature on the greenbelt in Harry's memory.

"The member grants scheme is a fantastic opportunity for councillors to find out more about the work community groups do in the local area and support them by awarding them with some funding."

Harry's widow Pat said: "The story telling seat was always one of Harry's dreams. I'm pleased we've been able to make it happen with the help of the member grants scheme.

"I was so overwhelmed by the support of the local community, schools, local business' and Charnwood Borough Council. A total of £8,436 was raised through the Spacehive crowd funding platform in conjunction with the idverde community investment fund for the project.

"I would like to thank everyone who supported the campaign."

Interested organisations should discuss their project with their local councillor before applying.

Applications for the member grants scheme can be submitted at any time up until December 31, 2019.
