Have your say

YOUTH groups across East Hampshire could find themselves £250 better off.

East Hampshire Youth Council (EHYC), whose members are aged between 11 and 21, has allocated £3,000 to provide grants to organisations that benefit young people and will be responsible for looking at the applications and deciding who gets a grant.

The scheme, called The Money Pot, has already helped groups from around the district by providing grants towards equipment, educational days out, events and projects.

The Money Pot has now been running for five years and has supported over 70 projects.

March 22 is the deadline for applications, so groups are being encouraged to apply now.

If you have a project or idea which could benefit from £250 worth of funding then you can find more information at
