Charities in Somerset and Devon could land a cash jackpot of thousands of pounds thanks to Newsquest Somerset.
The Gannett Foundation is the charitable arm of Gannett, owner of Newsquest Media Group, which publishes regional newspapers, websites and magazines nationwide – including Somerset County Gazette, Bridgwater Mercury, Chard and Ilminster News, Burnham and Highbridge Weekly News, Yeovil Express and the Mid Devon Star.
The Gannett Foundation provides funding to support local projects and organisations in areas where Newsquest operates in the UK.
It values projects that bring lasting benefits to the communities and neighbourhoods served by its newspapers. That includes schemes for neighbourhood improvement and local problem-solving, economic development, youth development, education and cultural creativity, help for the disadvantaged or disabled and environmental conservation.
