Apply for grant from carnival’s income

The Desborough Carnival Committee is inviting organisations and charities with a connection to the town to apply for funds raised through this summer’s carnival.

The amount which will be allocated is yet to be finalised.

Applications, with a description of the organisation or charity, should be sent to carnival secretary Carol Johnson, 26 Dunkirk Avenue, Desborough, to arrive by September 14.

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.”
