The Parish Council is able to give grants to local charities and community groups. The applications are first considered by the Finance & General Purposes Committee which then makes recommendations to the Full Council.

To make an application, download the form (and the guidance notes) and then send it to, or post it to the Parish Office at the address below.


The money that is collected during the parade and from other Carnival events is given to local charities and community groups. Over the years lots of different groups have been helped, including the Scouts, Age Concern, Bishopstoke and Friends of Stoke Park. Please note that applications this year must be in before Friday 6th September 2019. Grants are typically no more than £200 so please bear that in mind when making an application.


To download an application form please see the link in the side panel.
