Community groups in Bradford West are being invited to apply for funding.

Chairman of the City ward Community Development Fund, Aneela Ahmed, said the scheme had helped many groups over the years.

“The panel has successfully funded many projects over the three years; this is the fourth and final year of funding,” she said.

Last year it gave the Spencer Park Association for Residents £2,500 to tackle fly-tipping and Artworks Creative Communities was awarded £1,500 for a creative project.

Alpha United Junior Football Club was also awarded £2,500 for its project to project to encourage young people into sports and the Joshua Project was given £1,500 for its allotment and community garden.
