The Rye Fund Thanks to the generosity of local people and with the benefit of substantial match funding received under the government’s Grassroots Endowment Challenge, we are delighted to report that The Rye Fund has now reached £100,000.
Grants totalling £7,000 were awarded to twelve groups in the fifth round of funding late last year:
Rye Town Amateur Boxing Club – Competition ring & heaters
Rye Community Centre – Help towards new ceiling
Rye & District Community Transport – Replacement of old fleet
Entertainment Workshops – Salaries for workshops
Rye Museum Association – Medieval Conference 2014
Playden Community Friends – Help with start-up costs
Playden WI – Repairs to village hall
1st Rye Scout Group – Completion of kitchen & toilets
Winchelsea Bowls Club – Purchase of seeder
Friends of Rye Wurlitzer – Lessons for young people
Rye Harbour Village Hall – Replacement toilets
Music Well – Cost of music therapy
The panel regretted that it was not able to give grants to all the applicants, but on balance were satisfied that the projects chosen best fitted the eligibility and all round benefit to the community as a whole.
Applications are invited from groups and organisations, within a 9km radius of Rye, for funding projects up to £1,000. All applications will be considered, including from groups previously funded.
The closing date for applications is 10th October 2014 and simple application forms can be downloaded from the Sussex Community Foundation website www.sussexgiving.org.uk/apply-for-funding/ our-application-process.php or a paper copy obtained from the office (01273 409440) email info- @sussexgiving.org.uk
