Five projects in Norfolk and Suffolk have received more than £5,800 from Central England Co-operative's Community Dividend Fund.
Lowestoft's Men's Shed, a project designed to combat loneliness and provide support in times of need, was handed £4,000 to help continue its work in providing people with the chance to pursue hobbies, share skills and socialise.
Ray Ball, of Lowestoft Men's Shed, said: 'We will now be able to increase the variety of community users and the ability to plan events all year round.'
Pakefield Singers were given £749 to help pay for vital new equipment, while Kings Lynn-based Lactation Motivation received £400 to continue their work offering help and support for mothers in and around the town who breastfeed or wish to breastfeed.
In Eye, a social activity group for people with special education, Debenhams Girls Group, gained £263 to be used to start new activities.
