Groups can get a share of £10,000 cash pot

Macclesfield Express - - BEFORE THE BENCH -

COM­MU­NITY groups are be­ing en­cour­aged to bid for a share of a £10,000 cash pot.

Last year, dozens of ap­pli­ca­tions were re­ceived by Con­tour Homes, with sums of up to £2,000 awarded to com­mu­nity groups un­der the ‘Cash for Com­mu­ni­ties’ scheme. The win­ning projects in­cluded a com­mu­nity gar­dens mu­ral, shower fa­cil­i­ties for a lo­cal com­mu­nity cen­tre and fur­ni­ture and books for a lo­cal li­brary.

Now groups are be­ing urged to bid for a fresh cash in­jec­tion in 2016.

An­drew Lord, from the group, said: “We know there are lots of groups out there do­ing amaz­ing work and mak­ing a real dif­fer­ence.”

Groups can ap­ply for sums of be­tween £500 and £2,000 by email­ing their idea to com­mu­nity in­vest­ment team@ con­
