Spennymoor AAP - It’s up 2 U community grant fund event

Local organisations across the Spennymoor AAP area are set to benefit again from the It’s Up 2 U Community Grant Fund.

The fund, which is being made available through the Spennymoor Area Action Partnership (AAP), has proven to be very popular within the Spennymoor AAP area.  The decision on who gets the money will be made by members of the public who will get to vote on their favourite projects at the event being held on 4 February 2017 at Spennymoor Leisure Centre between 10am – 2pm. As long as you live, work, volunteer or study in the Spennymoor AAP area and are 11 or over, you will have the opportunity to vote on projects that will benefit the local community

At the event projects local to the area will be showcasing what they do and what they’d like the money for. After viewing the projects people will be asked to complete a ballot paper and vote for which four projects they would like funding to be awarded to.  At the event members of the public will also have the opportunity to vote on the priorities which they think the Spennymoor AAP should focus on for the 2017/18 financial year.

The event promises to be a really exciting opportunity for members of our community to get involved in making local decisions. You can only do this by being there on the day so make sure that you come along and make your vote count!
