The Rotary Club of Louth is offering local charities and community groups the chance to receive a grant of up to £5000.
The club has held a Memorial Fund for over 30 years, and the interest from it has been used annually to enable young people who would otherwise not have had the opportunity to go on an ‘outward bound’ type course.
John R Barker, the club’s Public Relations Officer, said: “As interest rates are now so low, it has become impossible to operate the fund.
“The club is therefore proposing to dispose of the capital of about £5,000 to help established local organisations (charities, community and voluntary groups) to provide opportunities for young people’s development through leisure activity.
“Requests for a grant for any amount up to a maximum of £5,000 will be considered.”
An application form and details can be obtained from Mr Barker on 01507 602968 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
