Five community groups have received financial support through Crawley Borough Council’s Open Grants scheme this month.
The scheme, which can grant up to £2,500 for local projects and initiatives, has awarded:
The Ekta Group is a group of older women who meet monthly to socialise, enjoy occasional trips and take group music lessons.
The Uganda Crawley Community Association aims to promote the health and wellbeing of Ugandans and improve their local community.
Gatwick Communicators, Crawley’s Toastmaster’s Club, helps people to deliver confident speeches, take control of their role and lead and influence others.
Rivers Learning Community Project is an independent charity that helps and supports women to access mainstream support for health, wellbeing and safety.
The Friends of Tilgate Park is a non-profit making group set up to help improve, maintain and protect the park. They promote both environmental improvement and practical conservation and educate, encourage and support the community.
The scheme funds a range of organised activity for wide community benefit. Unfortunately individuals cannot apply.
