Local sports and art groups have only until 18th November to apply for funding from The Mary Hignett Bequest Fund.

This legacy of local teacher, author and naturalist Mary Hignett is managed by Oswestry Rotary Club to fund local sports and arts projects.

The award cycle opens in September each year with applications to be received by 18th November in 2022.

Groups that have benefited in the past are as diverse as Kinnerley Cricket Club, the Porthywaen Silver Band, the Welshpool Poetry Festival, Open Space Studios, Designs In Mind, Pant Village Hall Committee, Music MOB, Cantiones and Oswestry Otters.

So if your sports or arts project needs a final boost to get it over the line then please visit the Club website www.rotarycluboswestry.co.uk, download the guidance notes (reading them to make sure that your project ticks the boxes) and then download and complete the application form which should be emailed to rotarycluboswestry@gmail.com by 18th November.

The decisions of the MHBF Committee will be confirmed by mid December.

Good luck!
