Worthing and Adur Fund is open for applications – deadline: Friday 5th May 2017
Are you a charity or community group that needs funding for a project?
The Worthing and Adur Fund gives up to £500 in grants to small charities and community groups working in Worthing and Adur. The next deadline for applications is Friday 5th May 2017.
Established in 2010, the Fund was set up in partnership with the Worthing and Adur Chamber of Commerce, under the umbrella of Sussex Community Foundation. A number of local Worthing people and businesses were founder donors and these donations established a core endowment fund. The income has since grown and enabled the Fund to make 29 grants worth £16,422 to 23 charities and community groups from Worthing and Adur
Recent groups supported by the Worthing and Adur fund include:
Worthing Town FC The Club has recently introduced a development team training opportunity for local under-5s keen to learn football. The response exceeded expectations leaving the Club without sufficient equipment to actively involve all of the children at each session. The Club used their £500 grant to buy four Junior goals, 20 Junior Lite balls and two packs of training bibs
Sussex Martlets Trampolining Club (pictured) used their grant to help buy additional floor safety matting and other safety equipment
Worthing Speakabout, an advocacy group run for and by people with learning difficulties. Grant went towards running costs, office rent, mini bus and hire of meeting room at Buddy's Cafe.
Worthing Gymnastics grant helped to fit out their new venue with essential apparatus.
Storm Ministries serves the local community through various activities, clubs and events. Their funding provided disabled access via a ramp with hand rails.
