Registered Charities and Community Groups in Beverley and the surrounding areas are being encouraged to bid for funding to help the elderly this winter. The HEY Smile Foundation, which provides funding and mentoring for small, independent charities, has earmarked £2,000 to help elderly people in the town as the cold weather sets in and grants of up to £250 are available.
The money has been made available thanks to a £20,000 donation from Sargent Electrical Services, of Woodmansey.
Community groups of registered charities can apply for grants by e-mailing
or by calling (01482) 597270.
Community Forward is a not for profit organisation that runs various projects aimed at promoting access to catering skills, educational opportunities and social activities in Hull and the East Riding area.
