G’s Community Fund
The G's Community Fund makes small grants to support small, local voluntary and community groups and organisations that are undertaking charitable work in Barway, Soham, Ramsey, March, Littleport and Ely
Preference is given to projects that develop young people, and/or have a horticultural focus, and/or are in some way related to local food. If funds allow, projects will also be considered if they preserve the local heritage or protect the local, natural environment and wildlife.
The following are examples of projects that have benefited from grants from a G's Community Fund Grant:
