Community groups and initiatives in Lowestoft have been urged to bid for a new grant from Bluebird Care, held to make their first year in the town.

The £250 community grant will be given to a group working with older people.

Managing director Amgad Breas said: “As well as providing care and companionship services to people living in their own homes, we are passionate about supporting community projects and initiatives.

“So many neighbourhoods thrive because of volunteers who work tirelessly to run community groups, host events and provide services that benefit others.

“Much of this work involves supporting older people who, without regular coffee mornings, day-trips or lunch clubs, would be left isolated at home.

“We want to work with a local project that gives older people an opportunity to try something new that will benefit their lives.

The group which best demonstrates a need for additional support will be offered the grant.

For more details call Bluebird Care on 01502 567 567, email, or visit their office at the Kirkley Centre.
