Filey Bay Today Birthday Grants 2024
Thanks to the very generous response to the Christmas Message Feature in our December edition we received a record amount in donations, in excess of £1,400. This we will add to our profits from sales and advertising to allow us to give monies back to community groups and organisations in our Annual Birthday Grants.
Throughout the past year we have featured feedback from some of the grant recipients who have given us an insight into the benefits our grants have brought to their organisations. From plants supplied to Bloom Groups to first aid kits for the Football Club, we have contributed to a variety products/training/advertising that organisations need to continue to provide a service for the community we love.
So now it’s over to YOU.
Is there something needed to improve your organisations activities? Does your club need some equipment? We welcome repeat applications even if you feel that, as past recipients, you aren’t eligible. You know the old saying “if you don’t ask you don’t get!” Please ask.
