The following amounts granted, some subject to certain conditions:

a) Mavis Friendship Club

£480 to provide transport costs for older people to attend the Mavis Friendship Club in Wood Rd.

£220 for publicity materials to support a community fair to be held on Saturday 7th March to showcase local organisations and promote their activites and services.

c) Age UK Bristol

£390 to provide a subsidised footcare service for the older people.

An application for funding from the St George Table Tennis Club was rejected because quotations were not include fro the desired table tennis tables nor the youth coaching work, nor was it clear how many coaching sessions would be provided or their location.  A revised application with this information would be welcomed for the next funding round.
