GRANT funding is now available from Horwich Town Council for community and voluntary groups and their local projects.

Announcing the opening of the grant scheme a council spokesperson said: “The town council recognizes that the Covid-19 pandemic has and continues to impact on many voluntary and community organisations here in Horwich as elsewhere.

“In unprecedented times plans have been disrupted, events cancelled and income reduced due to the cancellation of many fundraising activities.

“As usual the town council will be awarding its final round of grant funding for the current financial year to local voluntary and community organisations that are located in and serve the residents of the parish.”

Closing date for applications is February 28 for consideration in March 2021. Grants are usually awarded up to a maximum of £300 but due to the exceptional circumstances, requests for larger awards up to £500 will now be considered.

Application forms are available by emailing or downloaded from Council/ Your Council What We Provide.

The spokesperson said: “The town council hopes that as many eligible groups and organisations as possible take this opportunity to apply for a share of the substantial amount of funding still available to enable them to continue their events and activities in 2021 and beyond when restrictions are eased and life returns to normal.”
