Com­mu­nity grant scheme

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A COM­MU­NITY sup­port scheme which gives grants of up to £500 to Mac­cles­field charities, vol­un­tary groups and not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions has launched.

The scheme, run by Equi­lib­rium As­set Man­age­ment, will sup­port or­gan­i­sa­tions which help dis­ad­van­taged peo­ple, pro­mote sport and the arts, sup­port ed­u­ca­tion and de­vel­op­ment and ben­e­fit the en­vi­ron­ment. Colin Law­son, founder, said: “We find our­selves in a for­tu­nate po­si­tion where we are able to give back to the com­mu­nity and we want to take the op­por­tu­nity to recog­nise lo­cal groups which of­fer im­por­tant ser­vices but some­times strug­gle to find the funds needed to con­tinue to do so.

“That’s why we’re en­cour­ag­ing com­mu­nity groups across Mac­cles­field to ap­ply for the grants we have avail­able. We want to find those in­valu­able com­mu­nity groups, hear about the great work they are do­ing and sup­port them.”

Ap­pli­ca­tions can be made un­til April 2. For more in­for­ma­tion go to eqllp.co.uk.
