All applicants are deemed to have read and agreed to the “Scheme Description and Terms” as set out below:
Scheme Description and Terms
The ‘Stretton Focus Community Grant Scheme’ (referred to here as the ‘Scheme’) is owned and operated by Stretton Focus Limited. It has been established to make monetary grants to a variety of grant applicants, with the sole objective of supporting and enhancing the community within the ‘Strettons’ (Church Stretton, All Stretton and Little Stretton) and Minton.
Applications will be welcomed from, for example: individuals, clubs, societies, schools, churches, local welfare and charitable organisations, local businesses and business ‘start-ups’. Individual applicants may come from all age groups with a wide variety of needs and requests.
The minimum amount of a grant is £50 and the maximum grant is £1,000. Applications outside these limits will not be considered.
Grants will be made to commercial and business applicants ONLY if they are able to demonstrate that they have provided an equal or greater amount of funding for the same purpose. The issue of a grant cheque will be dependent on receipt of appropriate evidence that this has been achieved.
Applications will be accepted only if they are made on a completed ‘Scheme’ Application Form.
Grants will be made at the sole discretion of the ‘Scheme’ without recourse to appeal from the applicant or third parties. The ‘Scheme’ will not provide reasons to applicants for making a grant or for the rejection of an application.
Applicants who are not accepted for a grant will be notified in writing to the address provided by them in the Application Form.
Grants will be notified in writing to the successful applicants at the address provided by the applicant in the Application Form.
Grants will be made by a cheque from Stretton Focus Limited payable to the individual or organisation who is the named beneficiary in the Application Form. The cheque will be attached to the grant notification unless it is otherwise agreed by the ‘Scheme’ to be paid at an alternative time.
The ‘Scheme’ reserves the right to publish the monetary amount, name of the recipient and purpose of any ‘Scheme’ grant in the pages of the ‘Stretton Focus’ magazine, but will not publish the bio data of individual applicants, per the requirements of the Data Protection Act.
The ‘Scheme’ may be closed at any time by ‘Stretton Focus Limited’. Any grant made prior to closure will be honoured by ‘Stretton Focus Limited’.
