Relatively new small grant scheme that you may not have heard about:
"The WHSmith Trust is an independent registered charity (registered charity no: 1013782) that aims to support good causes in the local communities where WHSmith operates, and also to promote literacy and a love of reading. Each year the Trust supports employees by matching their fundraising and volunteering for charities and schools. The Trust also makes donations to hundreds of schools across the UK and funds large scale literacy projects through its long-standing partnership with the National Literacy Trust.
"With the introduction of the new WHSmith Community Grants, the WHSmith Trust is now offering grants of up to £500 to voluntary organisations and schools from the proceeds of the compulsory carrier bag levies across the UK. Grants are awarded every six months to charities, schools and community groups of any size, provided they support the community in the UK."
