GRANTS have been made available for current and former pupils of Malpas Alport Primary School to support their education.

The grants, courtesy of the Richard Alport’s School Foundation, are for individuals under the age of 25 who are attending or who have attended Malpas Alport Endowed Primary School for at least two years.

The aim of these grants is to support an individual's education or training at any secondary school, college, university, or other institution of further education, to provide financial assistance, outfits, clothing, tools, instruments or books and to provide bursaries or maintenance allowances to enable beneficiaries to travel.

A maximum grant of £200 is available and only one grant can be awarded to any one individual for these purposes.

Funding is also available for voluntary organisations in Malpas, Cuddington, Chorlton, Edge, Hampton, Newton, Oldcastle, Overton, Stockton, Wigland and Wychough.

These grants are for organisations which primarily serve children and young people, to assist with any aspect of the organisation's operation, subject to the approval of the Trustees.

The closing date for applications for grants for individuals is September 30 and application forms are available from the clerk to the Trustees by contacting Elma Ebben at 4 Cholmondeley Rise, Malpas, Cheshire SY14 8DD, phoning 01948 820656 or emailing
