YOUTH groups are being offered the chance to bag a £250 grant.

Organisations for young people in East Hampshire have until Friday, January 20 to apply for the cash boost from East Hampshire Youth Council’s Money Pot.

The scheme has already helped groups from around the district, including a grant to Horndean Parish Council for equipment and tools for a summer work experience and education project.

The youth council, whose members are aged between 11 and 21, allocated over half its annual budget to the scheme to provide grants for groups dedicated to young people.

The Money Pot also gives its members the opportunity to consider and award grants, and manage a budget.

Youth council co-ordinator Lara Nolan said: ‘The young people take their role of approving applications very seriously.

‘The aim of the group is to improve young people’s lives and the Money Pot fund helps them to achieve just that.

‘If groups use their creativity and spend wisely then £250 can go a long way.’
