The fête allocates a portion of its income to local good causes, and the committee makes its decisions on how much to award, and to which causes, based on bids from those who would like to be considered.
If you are part of such a local group, you can submit your bid for funding by downloading and completing this application form, or submitting the online form below.
The total amount of grant available will depend on the overall proceeds from the fête, but as guidance, in previous years we have awarded individual grants of as little as £20 and others of up to several hundred pounds.
The award of grants takes place when we have reached a final understanding of the proceeds, which can be quite some time after the event. All applications will be carefully considered. Please be patient.
