Ashton Community Bursaries Scheme
Each year the Community Bursaries Scheme allows Ashton Community Trust to use some of its financial resources to provide assistance to other community led projects. The bursary scheme represents a positive recognition of the great efforts of the many community volunteers that selflessly give up their time on behalf of local people. To date over 80 bursaries have been granted to local groups involved in activities such as sport, art, music, health, housing, culture, history, remembrance, safety and well being. In financial terms the bursary awards have amounted to £36,000. Ashton Community Trust understands how difficult it is to try and sustain this work particularly without access to regular funding and is delighted to provide this bursary scheme.
