Charities are being offered the chance to secure additional funding thanks to a new £3,000 bursary scheme.

Manor Walks leisure and shopping centre has launched the new Manor Walks Heart of the Community Fund.

Any registered charities operating in Northumberland can put themselves forward to receive a substantial grant to support their work in the region.

The scheme will help charities in undertaking vital work in their communities, and will see them awarded a £3,000 donation in the year-long partnership.

Application forms can be collected in person from the Manor Walks Centre Management Suite, downloaded from the Manor Walks website or charities can request a form by emailing

However, the deadline is fast approaching. Charities have until 5pm on Friday, July 13, to return their completed forms. For more see
