Cash for the Community

5th June 2019

CALLING local groups — we have a £15,000 pot of cash and we want to share it with you!

The Rotherham Advertiser has teamed up with the South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner to support small groups across the district.

Our new Cash For The Community initiative means vital money for local groups that deserve a bit of support.

It could be a small football club or a group dedicated to boosting their community or putting on popular events.

Groups can apply for a piece of the pie from your favourite community newspaper to a maximum of £1,000 each.

All you have to do is fill in a simple application form and tell us why you need the money.

A panel will go through each application.

Community groups must be non-profit making and the projects seeking cash need to fit in with the Police and Crime Commissioner’s priorities of protecting vulnerable people, tackling crime and anti-social behaviour, and treating people fairly.

Each group that gets a grant will be featured in the paper to highlight what it does and how the money will help.

If you prefer, you can get a copy from our office on Howard Street and post it to Cash For The Community, Rotherham Advertiser, Brookfields Way, Manvers, Wath-upon-Dearne, Rotherham S63 5DL or visit the cash for the community page and download the form.
