COM­MU­NITY Link Foun­da­tion awarded a to­tal of more than £15,000 in grants at its most re­cent trustees meet­ing.

There were six suc­cess­ful ap­pli­ca­tions from a va­ri­ety of de­serv­ing causes in­clud­ing in­di­vid­u­als and or­gan­i­sa­tions.

They had all ap­plied for grants from Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion through the web­site www.clfoun­da­

The do­na­tions were only pos­si­ble thanks to the gen­eros­ity of CLF’s sup­port­ers; whether they are mem­bers of the 600 Club, or­gan­is­ers of a fundrais­ing event, busi­nesses who reg­u­larly sup­port us, or one of the many peo­ple who sup­port us in other ways.

Re­cip­i­ents of the re­cent grants in­clude Time­savers, Churches To­gether in Orm­skirk, Sefton OPERA, St Lukes CE Pri­mary School, Home Start South­port and Formby and a dis­abled teenage boy.

Time­savers is an or­gan­i­sa­tion that helps peo­ple with learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ties gain of­fice skills and work ex­pe­ri­ence.

They ap­plied for a grant to en­able them to con­tinue run­ning projects over the com­ing months.

Churches To­gether in Orm­skirk suc­cess­fully ap­plied for a grant to help towards the costs of the Park Praise Fam­ily Fun Day which is held in Corona­tion Park on Satur­day, June 30 and is free to at­tend.

Sefton Opera (Older Per­sons En­abling Resource and Ac­tion) pro­vide health and well­be­ing ac­tiv­i­ties for older peo­ple all around Sefton.

They have been suc­cess­ful in their grant for fund­ing for a swim­ming in­struc­tor to hold begin­ners’ lessons and con­fi­dence build­ing ses­sions for the over-50s in South­port.

A grant has also been do­nated to an Ains­dale teenager who has Becker mus­cu­lar dys­tro­phy.

The money will help buy an elec­tric bike so that he can spend time out­doors with his friends and fam­ily.

Home-Start South­port and Formby ap­plied for a grant towards the rental of a hall where they can hold meet­ings for iso­lated fam­i­lies.

The meet­ings are for fam­i­lies of chil­dren with dis­abil­i­ties, refugees and peo­ple with de­pres­sion and poor men­tal health to help them feel safe and re­as­sured.

St Lukes CE Pri­mary School also ap­plied for fund­ing which was ap­proved.
