An example of previous grants awarded

Projects totalling £41,456 were approved under this Fund in early 2020. Most of these were put on hold due to Covid. However some activities happened, such as a socially-distanced film night. Many projects were extended and have now finished, apart from Armchair Zumba and Films which are due to finish this summer 2022. Some activities, such as dance classes, are hopefully sustainable and will continue to be available to the community.
