Grants Scheme – Holme Valley Land Charity

Would your community group or organisation benefit from funding support?  Do you have a land or environmental based project in mind?
£10,000 is to be made available by Holme Valley Land Charity, to support such a project, especially if it has a strong educational element.
Established in January 2009, the Land Charity was set up to manage and administer a number of plots of land which used to be stone quarries, now exhausted; some of the plots have been sold but many are being retained or tenanted, to maximise the benefit to the residents of the Valley.
The sole corporate Trustee (Holme Valley Parish Council) favours small-scale, locally based initiatives so the grant scheme will help to ensure that money raised by the Land Charity will stay in the Valley.  Funding will be given to one-off projects, towards something tangible (but not towards running costs, salaries etc) to help the local groups and organisations to do the good things that they do. 
To apply for part of the funding from the amount of £10,000 released so far, the deadline is 31 January 2015.  The grant form, including criteria and other terms and conditions, can be downloaded from the link below:
