There will be a good opportunity later this month for community groups and clubs in Northumberland to find out more about the grants available to help with activities and purchase new equipment.

Northumberland CVA’s latest funding fair is being held at the Hirst Welfare Centre on Alexandra Road, Ashington.

Representatives from ten different grant-making funders that support a range of projects will be attending to discuss how they may be able to support local bodies.

The organisations that will be present at the event include Big Lottery Fund, The Community Foundation and Northumberland County Council.

Anne Lyall, chief executive officer at Northumberland CVA, said: “Hosting funding fairs is one of the ways we regularly support community groups across the county.

“They provide an ideal opportunity for groups to speak directly with funders and get advice from them, as well as from our own experienced team of advisers who can provide further support.”

The fair is taking place on Wednesday, March 29, and 1pm to 4.30pm is the time-slot to book appointments. It is open to any community organisation based or delivering services in Northumberland.

To book a place, call Northumberland CVA on 01670 858688 or email enquire@northumberlandcva.org.uk – booking closes at 9am on Wednesday, March 22.
