Young people in north Norfolk have the chance to get a funding boost from a new fund set up to help them. The Kiln Cliffs Nurture Fund is about
supporting young adults (aged 16-25) in and around Mundesley, including North Walsham. They can apply for grants of £500 and money can be awarded for:
*Academic and professional training.
*Starting up a business or other
*Extra tuition fees and lessons, including
driving lessons.
*The purchase of equipment or materials,
such as a bicycle, to get to work, college
or school.
*The cost of a hobby, new skill or interest.
*Professional guidance.
The venture, supported by The Norfolk Foundation, is named after the family-run caravan park on the edge of the village. Sunny Malone, who set up the fund alongside her dad Graeme, Kiln Cliff’s director, and Fiona Maccallum, said: “The fund started as an idea dad had a while ago about wanting to give back to the community that has supported us for so many years to help provide opportunities or remove barriers for people through a grant.
“Basically, we are looking at providing young people with a little leg up in life, so they can fund something they might not be able to afford otherwise.”
Graeme said: “We set this up to say ‘thank you’. Mundesley is such a special place and Kiln Cliffs’ popularity owes such a debt of gratitude to that, so it feels important to acknowledge that and reciprocate in a meaningful way. The Kiln Cliffs Nurture Fund is our way of doing just that, year on year.”
The applications will be reviewed by a panel and grants awarded to those who are successful twice a year.

Offering a Helping Hand: Sunny Malone and her Dad, Graeme, have set up The Kiln Cliffs Nurture Fund to help young people in the area.
