COMMUNITY groups and charities have been urged to apply to a new bursary.
Heating oil supplier F Peart and Co has launched the fund to support local worthwhile causes, and it is seeking nominations from Northumberland groups.
Applications must be relevant to causes in the county and groups are advised to apply sooner rather than later.
Applicants should send an email or letter outlining the name, location and nature of their organisation, how it supports the community and, in no more than 200 words, what funding is required and how it will be used. Full contact details should also be given.
Nominations should be sent to Bursary@fpeart.com or by post to Bursary Application, Laura Jackson, F Peart and Company, Baltic Street, Hartlepool, TS25 1PW.
Successful applicants will be notified within 28 days of their nomination being received.
