ORGANISATIONS in Havant and Fareham are being encouraged to apply for funding from BBC Children in Need.

The good cause has already given more than £1.5m in grants across Hampshire, but Havant and Fareham are being targeted as potential beneficiaries.

Pam Bacon, regional officer for BBC Children in Need, said: ‘We’ve already got a strong footprint in Hampshire, but know that there are projects – particularly around Fareham and Havant – that could benefit from our funding.

‘We want to make a difference to as many young lives as possible, so are open to hear from new and former grantees.’

The scheme already supports Home-Start Havant and a charity in Fareham called 4Children.
