GRANTS totalling £33,000 have been made by the Gooch Charitable Trust to Ilminster projects in the past year.
At their recent annual meeting, trustees acknowledged that a growing number of Ilminster organisations appear to be aware of the trust and seven further grants of £7,750 were approved.
Among the schemes assisted were the Cygnet Pre-School for refurbishment of their new hut, Xtreme Carnival Club for the hire of a vehicle, the Ilminster Entertainments Society for upgrading the electrics in the foyer, the Ile Youth Centre for continuing programmes and the Minster Church towards vestry repairs.
Heather Virgin, Trust chairman, said: “It’s very pleasing to note the growing awareness of the trust and its work in supporting local organisations providing facilities and opportunities for Ilminster people.
“The Trust is eager to consider fresh applications at one of its three meetings each year.”
The Trust’s next meeting is at the beginning of December and interested applicants should call trustee Marion Ward on 01460-52214, from whom application forms are available.
