Comic Relief Community Cash Pot Funding Surgery Opportunity @ VANEL

Comic Relief’s Community Cash Fund is now taking funding applications from interested groups for projects which benefit your community. The funding pot is being managed and distributed by the Lincolnshire Community Foundation.

Sue Fortune from the Lincolnshire Community Foundation will be speaking to interested groups at a funding surgery on Tuesday 25th April at the VANEL office to discuss this and a number of other funding pots.

Comic Relief Community Cash grants of £500-£1,000 are available to small organisations in North East Lincolnshire (with an income of less than £100,000) run by local people that are doing great work to help local people living tough lives and have limited access to other sources of funding.  In 2016 more than 20 groups in the local area received a small grant as part of this initiative. Applications to apply for Comic Relief Community Cash grants close on Friday 5th May 2017.

To book a one-on-one appointment with Sue at VANEL’s funding surgery, please email

If you are unable to make the funding surgery but would still like to have an informal chat with Sue about your project, please call  (01529) 305825. She will be happy to clear up any queries and discuss issues relating to eligibility.
