Rugby Area Talent Trust (RATT) has opened its fourth tranche of grant funding and has invited young talented people from Rugby and the surrounding areas to apply.
The charity provides small grants to enable talented youngsters to develop their skills and talents in music, arts, academia, entrepreneurship and sport. This year additional grant funding is available because RATT received a substantial donation when Friends of CMS was wound up. Funding has also been provided by Rugby Rotary Clubs from the proceeds of the 2018 Rugby Spring Fair on Whitehall Recreation Ground.
Grant requests can be for £100 to £500 and should be submitted online at www.ratt.org.uk (and click on “GRANTS”). Applicants who are under 18 will need their parent’s support in order to apply.
Angela Head, one of the trustees of RATT, said “The grant application process is quite straightforward. Applicants will need to let us know about their particular talent and how a RATT grant will make a difference. The form needs to be completed online and the deadline is at the end of October. It’s extra exciting this year because we have additional funding available and it’s going to be really interesting to read through all the applications.”
RATT was founded in 2015 and has grown steadily and become well known around the town since, having provided the talent for Rugby Spring Fair, the mayors charity gala, and lots of local community events. in 2017 RATT secured registered charity status from The Charity Commission.
The grant application page is at ratt.org.uk/grants.
