A VOLUNTEER body has urged community groups to get their hands on specially-reserved funding.
According to Keystone Area Voluntary Organisation (KAVO), community groups in Forest Heath are missing out on thousands of pounds in funding because they are either unaware that they are entitled to it or do not know how to apply.
Sarah Williams, KAVO co-ordinator, said: “A lot of people don’t even know the money is there or assume it’s only for charities.
“But lots of community and voluntary groups just to need to contact us to find out how to apply.”
KAVO held a fair on Tuesday night in Mildenhall, with around 20 groups hearing from funders and learning how to apply.
