Grantham Additional Needs Fellowship (GANF) has won £500 from this year’s Lloyds Bank Community Fund.

The fellowship, which runs Ambergate and Sandon schools in Grantham, is one of four community groups to receive a donation from the bank’s fund.

Dementia Support South Lincs received £3,000, Sleaford Little Theatre received £2,000 and Toolbar received £1,000.

Over 700,000 people will be benefit either directly or indirectly from the good work the 1,400 good causes across the country will be able to deliver as a result of receiving a Community Fund 2014 award.

The votes were cast between September 2 and October 10, with people voting in branch, online, via text message, and, for the first time, Twitter.

Graham Lindsay, director for responsible business and community affairs for Lloyds Banking Group, said “It has been fantastic to see so many members of the public nominating and voting for good causes in the 2014 Lloyds Bank Community Fund. Looking at all the wonderful causes that the community fund awards will go towards is truly heartening to see. Helping our communities thrive in this way is crucial to us delivering our ambition to help Britain prosper.”
