YAY, UP TO £5,000 is on offer in the latest giveaway to be administered by Hackney council.
The catch is that you have to be a charity or community group. (Yes, sadly, the offer is not for individuals.)
Applicants will have to show how their projects will improve the lives of Hackneyites by aiming to:
* reduce poverty
* raise aspirations
* promote healthy living
* make the borough safer
* promote mixed communities
* increase community pride.
Projects will have to be carried out between 1 October 2015 and 31 March 2016.
Up to £1,000 is also available through something termed the community chest grant for short-term schemes that foster community, neighbourliness and pride.
