Chartiy funding

The group hands out funding through three separate pots - and have already started putting the cash to good use in the community.

Community Grant pays out up to £1,500 per group - and has already helped provide Warwick Sea Scouts with two new dinghies.

The Community Support fund offers grants of between £1,500 and £5,000 to groups in need of help. And has this year allocated £1,899 to Playbox Theatre and £3,000 to Newburgh School to pay for an outdoor performance area and seating at the school.

The final pot of Warwick Events grants offers sums of up to £5,000 with £3,500 already this year agreed to Warwick Folk Festival.

The pot has also paid £3,000 to Warwick Words Festival which will run in October and with a theme of Warwick History and the life of charity founder, Thomas Oken.
