They applied from all over the UK for a share of the £82,500 Grassroots Giving funding and then thousands of people took part, voting online for their favourite. In fact, this year the groups received over 51,000 votes, including 2,500 votes in Skipton Building Society branches across the UK.

Now in its sixth year, Grassroots Giving has already helped more than 800 community groups across the UK which might normally struggle to attract any funding. This year we have received over 740 applications and we have seen a wide and wonderful range of inspirational stories.
This year we are giving 165 organisations the chance to receive a £500 pot to help build a brighter future in their local communities.
Grassroots Giving was launched in 2013 to celebrate the Society’s 160th anniversary and proved to be an immediate success. It was designed to reflect our mutual roots and established to help people and communities to help themselves.
