Lyme Regis Regatta and Carnival organisers are inviting local groups and organisations to come forward and claim their share of £17,000 raised through this year’s Carnival Week.

Alan Vian, Chairman of Lyme Regis Regatta and Carnival Committee said: “We are so pleased to announce that after an incredibly successful Carnival Week we have a significant amount of money to distribute by way of grants to local groups and voluntary organisations.

"We are extremely grateful to our primary sponsors Lyme Bay Holidays and Toad Hall Cottages, all our wonderful local business supporters and all those who took part in an event or donated, helping us raise such a brilliant amount.

"Being able to support the local community and help make a real difference to some wonderful organisations makes the hard work and effort put in by the committee and our volunteers really worthwhile."

Local groups and organisations are invited to send an application via email to apply@lymeregiscarnival.co.uk stating the organisation name, general aims or purpose of the organisation, the amount desired and describing the purpose for which funds are required, being as detailed as possible.

Since 2004 over £187,000 has been distributed to local good causes from the proceeds of the town’s Carnival week.

The closing date for funding applications is Sunday 22nd October 2023.
