CHARITIES making a lasting difference to communities in Craven are being urged to apply for grants of up to £10,000.
The Gannett Foundation, which is operated by the US company that owns the Craven Herald, is inviting applications from registered charities which need cash for projects tackling issues across the district.
The projects could include education and neighbourhood improvements, economic development, youth development, assistance to disadvantaged or disabled people, environmental conservation and cultural enrichment.
Last year, Gannett awarded more than £300,000 across the newspaper group's UK circulation area.
One major recipient was the Bradford Beekeepers' Association, which received £9,713 to create an education project designed to turn youngsters into budding apiarists.
