Carnival cash for charities

Desborough’s Carnival Committee has invited local organisations and charities to submit applications for grants from this year’s proceeds.

Applicants must have a connection with or benefit the town. The committee, whose treasurer is finalising the total to be allocated, will make its decision at its next meeting.

Send applications, with a brief description of the organisation or charity’s activities, to carnival secretary Carol Johnson at 26 Dunkirk Avenue by Saturday, September 13.

Committee chairman Michael Crick said: “The support that we received on carnival day from the people of Desborough and local businesses means we will once again be able to distribute a significant amount of money to support local charities and organisations.”
