Rotary cash to boost Sutton groups

COMMUNITY groups in the Sutton area have the chance to apply for some much-needed funding from the local Rotary Club.

Sutton Rotary Club wants to distribute money collected during its December Prize Draw and Christmas Sleigh activities to groups who are doing good work in the community through its new Community Activity Fund.

John Pearce, chairman of community services at the club, said: “We are asking charities and organisations in the area to come forward if they are in need of support.

“We want to hear from voluntary groups who can demonstrate how they are helping locally and why they need our help. We will consider all applications.”

Any group or organisation wanting to apply for funding will need to fill in an application form that can be downloaded from or obtained by emailing

The form will ask about the group’s community work, the reasons why they are requesting support and how much is required.

The application deadline is 29th February.
