Apply for grants and donations

GROUPS and organisations in North Somerset have the chance to apply for a share in a community fund.

Britannia branches in Nailsea, Clevedon and Portishead are urging community groups, charities and schools to make applications for grants and donations toward their work.

Britannia has a community fund and charitable foundation, which are both now open for new applications for 2011.

During 2010, The Co-operative Financial Services, owner of Britannia, awarded grants totalling almost �500,000.

This year it is supporting projects that promote improvements in education, with a particular focus on numeracy and financial capability.
