How to apply for a grant from the mayor
PUBLISHED: 11:00 27 June 2016
Charities, volunteer teams and community groups in Weston-super-Mare are being invited to apply for funding from the mayor.
Each April the mayor hosts a charity ball and the funds raised are then given away to worthy causes by the next mayor, who takes over in May.
This year’s pot of money was raised by the previous mayor Ray Armstrong.
The town’s current mayor, Alan Peak, will hand out the cash as grants to groups in the town, as long as the group provides a service which directly benefits people in Weston.
Applicants must provide evidence that financial support is needed and give details of their organisation and, if applicable, the project or initiative to be funded.
To apply in writing, send a letter to: Mayor’s Civic Officer, Grove House, Grove Park, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 2QJ.
Alternatively you can email your application, attaching any supporting documents, to email@example.com
The closing date for applications is August 1.
Successful applicants will be notified by letter, which will also include details of the date and location of the grant presentation event.
