COMMUNITY groups have the opportunity to receive a cash boost for projects after the district council encouraged clubs to apply for grants up to £15,000.

In total £86,000 is available for projects that strengthen local communities, protect the environment, deliver homes for all, support economic growth, help people feel safe and secure, and improve opportunities for young people.

Bill Service, Cabinet Member for grants at South Oxfordshire District Council, said: “Since 1997 we’ve given over £12 million in grants to the local community and this is another great opportunity for groups to get a helping hand with projects.”

Groups can apply online by visiting www.southoxon.gov.uk/grants between August 1 and September 30.

Earlier this year, the district council gave £450,000 to help eight local voluntary groups with large projects. Applications are also open for grants of up to £250 for young achievers in the district until Friday 28 October.
