A COMMUNITY fund is open for applications.

The annual opportunity to apply to the Bellingham Fund at the Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland has recently opened.

The Bellingham Fund is a small Community Foundation fund that makes grants in support of community activity in Bellingham and the North Tyne Valley.

The fund primarily provides benefit to the Bellingham community, including Greenhaugh, Lane Head and Greystead areas.

Support to this community will be prioritised over projects elsewhere in the North Tyne valley.

The minimum grant size is £750 and the maximum is £2,000.

The fund is open to applications until January 26.

Applicants are invited to apply via the Community Foundation website, or via www.communityfoundation.org.uk/group_grant/supporting-community-activity-in-bellingham-and-the-north-tyne-valley/
