The organiser of a fund which offers one-off grants to community groups and organisations in the All Saints area of Kettering is urging people to claim the cash before the fund expires next year.

The All Saints Community First Panel is made up of volunteers who work with groups to distribute grants of £250 to £2,500 in a bid to improve the All Saints ward.

The final deadline for applications is on January 16 next year.

David Meagher, chairman of the Community First Panel, said: “We’re rapidly running out of time to give out the last of the funding from the community first panel.

“If the money is not used it will once again be sucked back into the government coffers.”

Groups which have already benefited include Kettering Park Infants School, Kettering Retail Crime Initiative, Weekley Rovers Football Club and All Saints Playgroup and Pre-school.
