TRUSTEES at The Gloucestershire Environmental Trust allocated over £225,000 in funding to good causes in May, bringing the total amount of grants allocated in 2014 to more than half a million pounds this year and with more to come.
Every year, communities across Gloucestershire benefit from over £1 million distributed by The Gloucestershire Environmental Trust and funded under the Landfill Communities Fund by Cory Environmental Ltd.
Projects awarded grants in May 2014 were Eastington Youth Group, Eastington Park Project who received £15,000 and Rodborough Community Hall who were granted £4,470.
Stephen Owen, Chair of the Trustees, said: “The money is there for the benefit of local communities across Gloucestershire which are seeking to raise money for a particular project and I encourage them to come forward and talk to us.”
So how can local community groups get their hands on this money?
Applications for grant funding from the Trust must come from non-profit organisations.
Only one application per organisation will be considered in any 12-month period.
