IT’S getting close to ‘D-day’ for charity groups in Huddersfield as the deadline to apply for grants dawns.
Charitable groups have one week to apply for a grant from a leading West Yorkshire renewable company’s Community Fund.
Brian Maguire, Leo Groups property manager said: “Our aim is to support local organisations, in particular those involved with children and young people.”
Organisations that have already benefited from the grant-giving initiative are Bradford and District Autistic Support Group and Manorlands Sue Ryder Hospice, at Oxenhope.
“Already we have handed out thousands of pounds to local groups as we wanted to give something back to the local community,”Mr Maguire said.
“The current economic climate is having a detrimental impact on charities and organisations and individuals are being forced to cut back on the amount of money they give,” he added.
The deadline for applications is January 14.
