CHARITIES and community projects in the North Chichester area are being urged not to miss out on potential funding.

North Chichester County Local Committee (CLC) has more than under £12,000 left to allocate from its Community Initiative Fund for the 2014/15 financial year.

Committee Chairman Michael Brown said: “Due to publicity before our last meeting we had the opportunity to give grants for the purchase of musical instruments to lend to children; solar panels for an allotment shed in the Petworth Community Garden and a lawnmower for a local community centre.

“We’d still love to help more people, and I’m sure there are lots of wonderful – and worthy – charities or organisations that would benefit from a ‘pre Spring’ boost.”

The deadline for applications is February 6.
