ORGNISERS of rural charities in Yorkshire are being asked to apply for grants being made available by the Country Land and Business Association (CLA) Charitable Trust.

The trust is asking to hear from small regional groups providing rural educational and recreational facilities or projects for the disabled and disadvantaged, which could benefit from additional financial support.

Peter Geldart of The CLA Charitable Trust said: "This September will see the start of the Year of Food and Farming and we are particularly keen to speak to local groups involved in educational activity relating to the countryside.

"In addition to giving one-off grants we are more interested in forming long-term relationships with organisations through which we can deliver ongoing support over an extended period of time."

Last year The CLA Charitable Trust donated in the region of £60,000 to good causes throughout the country. In recent years it has supported a number of projects throughout Yorkshire including donations towards an educational project with Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust and the cost of a new building at the Bluecoat Wood Nurseries in Harrogate.

The trust was founded by CLA members in 1980, since when it has awarded grants of more than £1.5m to allow those with disabilities and disadvantages to learn about and enjoy the countryside.

  • Anyone who would like to apply for a CLA Charitable Trust grant or support the work of the trust in other ways should send information in writing to CLA Charitable Trust Yorkshire, Old Toll Booth Market Place, Easingwold, York, YO61 3AB or email info.yorkshire@cla.org.uk
