Skipton Building Society’s award winning, community funding scheme, Grassroots Giving, has now officially launched its 2015 campaign.

Grassroots Giving gives small community groups, clubs and organisations from across Northampton the opportunity to apply for a £500 donation.

Launched two years ago Grassroots Giving aims to give more sustainable support for local communities, as part of the society’s 160th anniversary.

While offering community funding, Grassroots Giving also provides support, guidance and public profile to every one of the thousands of entrants.

Since 2013 the scheme has given over £160,500 to small community groups across the country, including many in the Northampton area.

Last year’s winners included two local Northampton groups, Premier Stars and Giggles Play CIC awarded because of their work in the local community.

Applications for entries are now open at www.
