Voluntary and charity groups in Suffolk have until 5pm on Friday to apply for up to £1,500 of grant funding through the High Sheriff’s Fund, which is designed to support work with young people - aged eight to 25.

Groups must be able to demonstrate that they are working to improve their communities and the lives of residents in some way.

Judith Shallow, High Sheriff of Suffolk, said: “Since the role of the High Sheriff is associated with law and order, all grant requests should demonstrate good citizenship, crime prevention or community safety, which help to make Suffolk a better place in which to live.”

Successful grants will be presented by the High Sheriff at a ceremony hosted by BBC Radio Suffolk presenter Lesley Dolphin and development director at the Suffolk Community Foundation, Tim Holder, at the Museum of East Anglian Life, on March 31 nest year.

For more information, to check if your group or project is eligible to apply for a grant or to request an application form, call the grants team at the Suffolk Community Foundation on (01473) 602602 or visit
