The fund comes from weekly car boot sales held in Dorchester and will be distributed to local community and voluntary organisations to benefit projects operating within or supporting residents living in the area. In 2020, over £13,000 was awarded to local community and voluntary organisations in Dorchester.
Among the organisations who received funding in 2020 were Bradford Peverell Village Hall who received £1,000 towards the replacement of their roof and Homestart West Dorset who received £1,500 towards their running costs.
Cllr Molly Rennie, Chair of the Dorchester Market Car Boot Grant Panel said: ‘It was wonderful to award over £13,000 to local organisations. We recognise the hard work that they do to make lives better for others.’
The 2022/23 car boot fund is open until midnight Saturday 12th November 2022.
Decisions will be made at the end of November, and groups will be notified before the Christmas break.
Successful applicants will be invited to a celebration event next year to share news about their projects.
An application form and additional guidance can be found on the Dorset Council website
