Keynsham groups can bid for share of £25,000 funding

Published on: 03 Apr 2015

Groups are being invited to bid for a share of £25,000 as Keynsham Town Council hands out its annual grants.

The money can be used by local organisations towards initiatives and equipment that benefit the community and this year the scheme incorporates the grants handed out to local arts groups and projects each year.

Last year, the town council awarded money to Keynsham Wombles to purchase litter-picking equipment, to Fry Netball Club to buy kit for the under-12s team and to Keynsham Explorer Scouts to allow them to replace and update the sound system in their headquarters.

Keynsham Film Works received funding through the scheme to help with advertising and publicity while another share was given to the Golden Oldies charity to support its singing group.

Grants awarded range from £100 up to £1,000 and there will be a presentation evening for successful applicants in July.

Application packs are available from Keynsham Town Council office at 15-17 Temple Street or from the council’s website at from Monday, April 20, to Friday, May 1, 2015. 

Any charity, voluntary or public sector organisation working in Keynsham for the benefit of Keynsham residents is entitled to apply for a grant. 

Town council staff can assist organisations in the completion of their grant application forms if required.

The closing date for applications is noon on Friday, May 22, 2015.
