Community cash is up for grabs

Have your say

COMMUNITY groups and schools are being invited to apply for a cash boost.

Chester-le-Street social landlord Cestria Community Housing has announced a £15,000 community fund, which is available for groups and projects that will benefit people living in the area.

The fund is available to anyone, not just tenants of Cestria Community Housing and the association is encouraging non-tenants, community groups and schools to apply for funding towards their projects.

Applications must be submitted at or call 385 1400 for an application form.

The deadline for all submissions is Friday, August 10.

All projects will be short-listed by a panel of tenants from Cestria Community Housing.
