AN Almondbury community group is hoping to be on song for a slice of £30,000 in the Examiner Community Cash Giveaway.
Almondbury Disabled Group 97 wants £400 to buy a karaoke machine and microphones.
The group has provided leisure activities for disabled people aged 18 and over since 1995.
It became a registered charity in 1997.
It is run by a management committee of 10 people and runs games afternoons, themed days, karaoke parties and day trips.
It has 40 members and is based at Alms Row in Almondbury.
If the club is granted cash, it will set up a weekly karaoke club.
Steph Rolnowski, committee member, said: “At present we have about four karaoke days a year.
“Everyone enjoys these days so much, we would like to have more.
“But we can’t afford to keep hiring the equipment. If we were successful we could buy our own so that everyone could have a go.”
The £30,000 up for grabs is from the Government’s Grassroots Grants scheme, managed by Community Foundation for Calderdale.
To benefit, groups must apply by February 27. Groups need to be based in Kirklees or Calderdale, have an annual income of less than £20,000, be voluntary run and have been in operation for more than 12 months.
