Barnsley Council is giving community groups in Wombwell, Hemingfield and Jump the chance to apply for funding grants.

The Captain Allott’s Charity makes donations of up to £300 to worthy local causes and the next deadline for completed application forms is Friday, November 25.

Applications will be considered at a charity management meeting on Friday, December 16.

A council spokesperson said: “Applications are limited to groups whose normal meeting place is in these areas of Barnsley and any projects will be considered.”

Captain Allott was a philanthropist who bequeathed his large house to local people. The property was sold by the council and the money raised put into a special fund.
