Charities and non-profit organisations in Tewkesbury can apply to receive a portion of the £350,000 funding.

Tewkesbury's charities and non-profit organisations are to receive a big funding boost, with the council handing out grants as part of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund and Rural England Prosperity Fund.

Tewkesbury Borough Council is distributing £350,000 through two schemes, intended to boost cultural and historical institutions and to promote energy efficiency in community buildings.

£100,000 will be provided to non-profits in order to enhance the region's culture and history, while the remaining £256,000 is reserved for enhancing energy efficiency.

Cate Cody, lead member for the community at Tewkesbury Borough Council, said: 'The funding has the potential to enhance culture and showcase the rich history and heritage within our borough as well as promoting community pride and energy efficiency.'

'I’m very much looking forward to seeing the positive impact that this grant funding will have across the borough.'

The UK Shared Prosperity Fund was created as part of the government's 'Levelling-Up' scheme, which will provide £2.6 billion of funding to local institutions across the country before March 2025.

Applications for grants of between £2,500 and £24,999 are now open via Tewkesbury Borough Council's website.
