Grants totalling more than £40,000 have been given out to 30 groups which help people across Huddersfield.
The Huddersfield Common Good Trust has given out the money to representatives of the groups across the town.
They include churches, music groups, and sports clubs, and recipients vary from Huddersfield RUFC to Kirkheaton Library.
The Trust is a registered charity, formed in 1962, and run by a group of local people who act as Trustees and give their time and expertise on a voluntary basis.
It meets regularly to consider applications for grants from local people in need of support.
The money held by the Trust is from a variety of sources, including legacies, donations and covenants from businesses who wish to support the local community, and from personal gifts.
Funds are invested in stocks and shares to provide a regular income which is given to groups in the community as grants.
All grants are for equipment purchases or building works, and the Trust cannot give for running costs. It’s open for bids via its website www.hcgtrust.org.uk or write to Antony Haigh, Secretary, c/o Methodist Mission, Lord Street, Huddersfield.
