Community groups and voluntary organisations across Hailsham are set to benefit from £10,050 worth of grants after recommendations from the Finance, Budget & Resources Committee were ratified by Hailsham Town Council. These grants form part of the 2015/16 Community Grant Scheme.
The Town Council will award grants in the coming weeks to a wide range of community groups that aim to introduce improved facilities, activities or projects for the benefit of the town’s residents. An additional £10,981 has been awarded to the Hailsham Citizens’ Advice Bureau and £3,000 to the Hailsham Pavilion.
Councillor Chriss Triandafyllou, who sits on the Town Council’s Finance, Budget & Resources Committee said:
“Our yearly grant scheme is the main way in which the Town Council provides funding and support to the voluntary sector. Most of the time, voluntary groups and charities survive on the generosity of donations from the public, fundraising and the willingness of volunteers to give up their time.
Small grants such as these are a valuable addition to this mix and can make a considerable difference to them when planning and funding a worthwhile project. Such organisations are assets to the local community and I’m proud the Town Council can help them to keep up the excellent work they are doing by way of these grants.”
The next deadline for grant aid applications (2016/17) will be the end of January 2016. For an application form, please write to the Town Clerk, Hailsham Town Council, Inglenook, Market Street, Hailsham, BN27 2AE.
