Call for groups to dip into �50,000 pot
A �50,000 pot of cash is up for grabs to help community projects.
The money, donated by Veolia Water, is available to charities and community groups working in the fields of social inclusion, child welfare and education, the environment and the disadvantaged within south east.
Almost 40 organisations benefitted from grants last year, including Grange Junior School in Letchworth and Turn the Tide Boat Project and Hertford Road Community Association in Stevenage.
Managing director, Richard Bienfait, said: “We want as many organisations as possible to have the chance to benefit from the fund, and we would like to encourage them to visit our website and apply for support.
“A committee of our staff, many of whom live in Hertfordshire, decide how the money is allocated and are looking forward to visiting some of the projects that are successful this year to see for themselves how the money will benefit the organisation.”
