TIME is running out for charities in south Bucks to apply for a grant to support worthwhile causes through the Bucks Free Press.

Registered charities in the south of the county can still apply for a Gannett Foundation grant - but the deadline for applications is this Friday.

The funding is provided by the Gannett Foundation, which is the charitable arm of the BFP's parent company Newsquest.

Grants are generally between £5,000 and £10,000, but they will also accept more modest applications.

Applications must be submitted on the approved application form, which can be downloaded at www.bucksfreepress.co.uk/gannettfoundation/ .

The completed form and supporting document should be sent via email to acarswell@london.newsquest.co.uk or post to Gannett Foundation, Bucks Free Press, Loudwater Mill, Station Road, Loudwater, High Wycombe, Bucks, HP10 9TY by 5pm on September 21.
