There is less than a week left for youth organisations in and around Mawnan to apply for a share of charity money.

A total of £1,000 was raised at last September’s Mawnan Run Fun, half of which has already been donated to the Falmouth Rotary Club Charity Fund.

The remaining £500 will be distributed to local youth organisations for projects which will benefit children and young people living within Mawnan Parish – but the closing date is this Monday.

Organisations can apply for a maximum of £150 to fund a specific trip, event, activity or piece of equipment and it is hoped that a number of different small projects will be supported.

Rotarian Rod Allday, chairman of the fun run committee, said: “We are keen to receive lots of applications from local youth organisations, by the closing date of June 30, in order to spread the benefit of the fun run to as many young people living within the parish of Mawnan as possible”.

The application form and criteria can be found on the Mawnan Fun Run website
