Shop Grant Successes

For those of you following progress on the community shop project you will know that we have submitted a series of grant applications over the past few months.  We have now received our first grant offers – the South Downs National Park Sustainable Communities Fund has awarded the project £10,000, Chichester District Council has awarded us £15,000 and the National Lottery Awards for All Fund has given us a grant of £10,000.  This gives us a total of £35,000 for grant funding so far – a very encouraging start!
