Small Grants Fund

We are always happy to consider with our Small Grants Fund, opportunities under our charitable status, whether it be maintenance of village halls, Christmas entertainment in local Sheltered Housing Communities or Talking newspapers for the blind.

We visit local groups to "spread the word" of our organisation on an increasing basis and to review recipients for our Small Grants Fund.
