£500 grants up for grabs as scheme opens

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

A COM­MU­NITY sup­port scheme has opened to give char­i­ties, vol­un­tary groups and not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions the chance to win grants of £500.

Equilib­rium As­set Man­age­ment has run the scheme since 2015 and awarded al­most £10,000 to com­mu­nity groups.

The scheme sup­ports or­gan­i­sa­tions which help dis­ad­van­taged peo­ple, pro­mote sport and the arts, sup­port ed­u­ca­tion and de­vel­op­ment and ben­e­fit the en­vi­ron­ment Mac­cles­field, Wilm­slow and Knutsford.

The win­ner in round one of the 2017 scheme, which ran be­tween Jan­uary and April, was Mac­cles­field Seals Dis­abled Swim­ming Club, founded in 1957 for chil­dren and adults with dis­abil­i­ties.

Colin Law­son, founder and part­ner of Equilib­rium As­set Man­age­ment, said: “We con­sider our­selves very for­tu­nate to be in a po­si­tion to run a Com­mu­nity Sup­port Scheme that of­fers fund­ing which many or­gan­i­sa­tions need to con­tinue the ex­cel­lent work that they do.”

Ap­pli­ca­tions to the sec­ond round of this year’s com­mu­nity sup­port scheme can be sub­mit­ted un­til Septem­ber 17.
