Awards of funding since 2013 for Community small grants

We’re pleased to have supported a total of 59 projects through our Community Small grants. Below you can see all the recipients since our programme started in 2013!

In addition to these grants, in 2020 we gave £8,000 to the foodbanks which was split between the Brighouse Foodbank and Focus4Hope.

As we have two care homes for the elderly in Rastrick we took the decision to treat the residents and at Christmas 2020 a total of 100 residents received a small gift from Rastrick Big Local!
