Small community groups in Bridlington are being invited to apply for a donation from Skipton Building Society’s Grassroots Giving scheme.

This year, a total of £82,500 is up for grabs and anyone interested in finding out more can visit the Bridlington branch of the society.

David McWilliam, manager at the Wellington Road branch, said: “Grassroots Giving is all about helping the small community groups which would not normally gain any financial support.

“We are keen to encourage anyone with a question to visit the branch and pick up a leaflet which explains how to apply for funding.”

Applications opened on Tuesday 1 May and anyone wishing to find out more can visit the Grassroots Giving website at www.skiptongrg.co.uk.
