The Galaxy Hot Chocolate Fund aims to help small, local community based projects and community-minded people by providing one-off grants for individuals and community groups whose projects focus on sporting and leisure activities and community improvement.
Each week from Monday 7 November until Sunday 26 February 2017 five awards of £300 will be given out to individuals and groups to help with their community-orientated initiatives. There will be 70 awards in total.
One of these awards will go to the project receiving the most public votes each week, while the other four will be selected by a panel of judges who will assess each entry and use of an award based on:
o The extent to which the proposed initiative will help the local community;
o The extent of the proposed initiative’s reach; and
o The perceived local need for such hobbies, sporting or leisure activities.
Community organisations, school groups and charitable agencies in the UK and Ireland can apply.
A list of previous winners can be found on the Galaxy Hot Chocolate website.
Applications must be submitted between 00.01am on  Monday 7 November 2016 and 11.59pm on Sunday 26 February 2017.
A maximum of one application per person/club/organisation is permitted.
Applicants should complete the online application form on theGalaxy Hot Chocolate Fund's website (please note that visitors can only access the website once they've entered their date of birth).
Guidelines for the programme can be found via this LINK.
Applicants will be asked to describe in 200 words or less how the award will be used and why it would be beneficial.
Applications which are not successful in any given week will automatically be carried forward to the following week, although any votes on the website for previous weeks will be discarded.
