Grassroots Giving applications for 2018 now open with £82,500 funding available.

Applications for Skipton Building Society’s Grassroots Giving community funding scheme 2018 are now open – this year a fund of £82,500 is available to help small groups and organisations make a difference in their neighbourhood.

Applications can be made online and will close on 31 July. 

Last year 164 groups received funding pots of £500 to help them build a brighter future in their local communities. Our deserving winners shared a total fund of £82,000, and they are now enjoying spending the money in their area, with communities all over the country reaping the benefits.

Tynedale Cricket Club were successful in securing funds last year. They used the funding to provide all junior members a club playing shirt. This means that every junior feels part of the club and the Tynedale Cricket family. They wear the shirts with pride and it will encourage them to continue to play cricket and obtain the social and heath benefits that it provides.

More information and application procedure can be found on the Skipton Building Society website.
