Corby Council’s lead member for community, Cllr John McGhee, said: “Throughout the year, groups and individuals within the community provide fantastic events and activities for the people of Corby and we would like to help where possible towards funding them.

“I would urge not-for-profit groups or individuals, who have something planned for the coming year to get their applications in and see if they could be eligible for a grant of up to £500.”

The deadlines for applications for grants are 5pm on Friday, August 9, Friday, October 18 and Wednesday, January 15, 2014.
