THERE is still time for community groups and charities to apply for grants up to £1,500.

Cash is available through a small grants programme of funding from Bolton Council and NHS Bolton.

Grants can be given to voluntary or community groups, registered charities, registered community interest companies and other organisations based in Bolton.

Organisers are keen to support projects helping people in Bolton’s poorest communities, with disabilities or whose opportunities are limited by other factors, such as a lack of local facilities.

They hope most of the grants will cover ongoing costs of regular activities in Bolton.

Priority will be given to organisations with an annual income of under £25,000.

The deadline for applications is 4pm on Monday, February 25. To apply or find out more, call Bolton CVS on 01204 546028 or visit
