A scheme which aims to hand out grants to community groups and organisations in the Northampton area has launched its 2015 campaign.

Skipton Building Society’s Grassroots Giving offers grants of £500 to causes which usually receive little financial support.

Last year, Northampton organisation Premier Stars (pictured above) were one of the recipients.

Roy Prenton, from Skipton’s Grassroots Giving team, said: “Our scheme has far exceeded our expectations, demonstrating that many local community groups need this help and support.”
