Rowley Regis community groups offered helping hand
8:00am Friday 5th October 2012 in News
Rowley Regis community groups are being given the chance to get vital cash windfalls to help them survive.
Sandwell Homes Community Chest Fund, which annually hands out cash to local groups, is looking for local community groups to help.
Already this year money has been donated to Riddins Mound Playcentre, Compton Grange Sheltered Scheme and Blackheath Town Football Club.
The funding is part of £5,000 donated by the Community Chest fund to each of the borough’s six towns.
Community Involvement Manager Derek Fletcher said:”Grants are available up to a maximum of £500 to purchase equipment or contribute towards the cost of a one-off event.
“We still have some money for groups in the Rowley Regis area and would welcome applications as soon as possible.”
Application packs are available by ringing 0121 569 6166 and need to be returned no later than Friday, November 2.
