A total of £14,000 has been awarded to local projects by the Community Fund for Reigate and Banstead in its first six months.
The latest organisations to receive funding from the Fund are Sight for Surrey, Princess Alice Hospice and Age Concern Merstham, Reigate and Redhill. They’ve each received between £1,500 and £2,000. Their projects include communication classes for the visually impaired in Redhill, and a community allotment in Banstead.
The Fund is managed by the Community Foundation for Surrey. It was developed in partnership with Reigate and Banstead Borough Council and locally based businesses.
