THERE are just days left for community projects to apply for up to £25,000 worth of funding.

The Better Together initiative, from home insurance company Together Mutual, aims to help schemes that make a difference for residents.

Entry closes on Friday with a shortlist announced later which will be open to the public to vote on.

The winning projects will get both cash funding and labour to complete the work, carried out by Groundwork MSSTT – an environmental regeneration charity.

Entrants will need to submit a 200-word description of the project and how it will contribute to the local community, along with two to three images.
