Our last round of grants were awarded in August to:

Hornsea Walking Football Club

Hornsea Town Walking Football Club provides a fun way for older people in the town to stay fit and healthy. The club will use its grant to provide safe and secure storage for its equipment.

Barrow Methodist Church

A focal point of the local community offering a place for older people to meet friends and find companionship. The group will use its grant to make its meeting rooms more welcoming.

Brigg Arts & Culture Centre

The thriving new North Lincolnshire arts and community centre will invest its £1,000 grant in a projector screen to help host community cinema nights for the region.

One Off Productions

The Hull-based theatre group takes entertainment on the road. The group will use its grant to buy equipment for use by its touring troupe to entertain care home residents.

Hull Trinity House

Hull Trinity House school will use its £1,000 grant to buy essential equipment to give students the opportunity to take part in an outdoor camping and hiking expedition.

Who can apply for a grant?

Anyone from a community in Hull, East Yorkshire or North Lincolnshire where KCOM services are available or being installed can apply for a grant.

Your application must be on behalf of a local community group, charity, voluntary group, club, school or other not-for-profit organisation, although you don’t need to work for them.

What can the grant be used for?

The grant must be used to benefit people living in our region. It can be used for specific purchases or to run activities or an event. Previous grants have been used to stage poetry competitions, create gardens, run community-based weight loss programmes and to buy everything from sports equipment to school library books – the options are almost endless. Grants must be used within six months of being awarded.

Who decides if your application is successful?

Our community panel - made up of KCOM employees who live and work in the region, considers every application we have received during this period on a bi-monthly basis.

What makes a successful grant?

Our community panel is looking for applications that will make a positive difference to members of the local community. Ideally, the grant should cover the whole cost or most of the cost of a project, purchase or event, rather than being put towards a bigger fundraising target.
