Grants of £500 on offer to local grassroots groups


The Skipton Building Society’s Grassroots Giving 2016 campaign has opened to applications. They want to support groups who show a real commitment to their local community and who are volunteer-orientated, seeking to enhance the lives of their neighbourhoods.

The funders are looking for projects that are able to demonstrate a lasting impact, and that can show they will be helping to build a legacy for the community.

As the idea behind Grassroots Giving is to help community organisations, or groups, who only have access to limited funding from elsewhere, funding is not available to registered charities.

For more information and to apply, go to the Grassroots Giving website The closing date is 29 July.
