Still time to get your hands on a grand

There is still time for residents and community groups from the Boston Big Local area to get their hands on up to £1,000 Community Chest funding.

This round's deadline is Monday, October 31, at 6pm and will be decided by a panel of residents within the local area.

Grants of up to £1,000 are available as long as the project or idea meets one of the four Boston Big Local priorities: Improving health and wellbeing; creating a more attractive environment; building community spirit and encouraging enterprise.

Mr. Jody Raggo, Boston Big Local resident and facilitator of the Community Chest said: "Some residents and community groups I've spoken to think there is some kind of catch and don't believe they can apply for up to £1,000. There is no catch and if any group or individual has an idea that they would like to get off the ground but need some money to make it happen, I would encourage them to apply. If you don't know where to start or would like some help, I can help with that too."
