Moyle Christmas events grants scheme

Moyle District Council’s ‘Grants Scheme for Older Person’s Christmas Events’ 2012 is now open for applications.

The grants programme provides financial assistance to community groups running events for the older residents of Moyle over the Christmas period.

Community groups organising a Christmas event for older residents of Moyle (of pensionable age) can apply. Information on how the event will involve older residents and how it will benefit more than just their own group must be provided on application forms. Events must be completed before 14th January 2013.

Successful applicants will receive a percentage of their total qualifying costs, with awards varying per group based on the cost, size and potential impact of their event. The amount of grant available is limited to a maximum grant of £250 per group so as many eligible events can be supported as possible.

Application packs have already been sent to many local groups, however if your group is planning a Christmas event for Older People and hasn’t received it, please contact Moyle District Council to request one as soon as possible.

Application Forms and Guidelines for Applicants can be obtained by contacting the Development Department at Moyle District Council on (028) 2076 2225 or email: Information can also be downloaded from the Good Relations section of the Moyle District Council Website:

Applications for events being held over the 2012 Christmas period must be received by 4pm on Friday 26th October 2012.
