MEDIA RELEASE – June 1st 2011

Time to apply

The time is approaching again for Wirral-based community and voluntary sector groups to apply for a grant from the Your Wirral fund.

The latest funding window opens on Monday 6th June and closes on Thursday 17th June. Your Wirral can provide funding of up to £2,500 to local groups to help them pay for one-off pieces of equipment, activities or events.
The Your Wirral fund is jointly administered by Wirral Council and Wirral Partnership Homes and has benefited 126 different groups and handed out nearly £250,000 in the last year alone.
Among the groups who benefited from the last round of funding in February was the Gilroy Road Community Allotment Society, who received a grant to help them set up a new community garden and allotments. Greasby Outdoor Activity and Leisure also received assistance to help with the restoration of the Coronation Park Pavilion, while the Get Hooked on Fishing group obtained funding for their ‘Access to Angling for Disabled People’ project.
Applying is easy. If you would like more information or help with completing an application, please call 0151 691 8349 or email: info@yourwirral.org.uk
