Young people preparing for their next big adventure might be eligible for a fundraising boost.
The Platt Subsidiary Foundation is giving grants of between £200 and £800 people under 25 in the Radlett, Aldenham and Shenley area who are planning a project or expedition away from home.
In order to be eligible, the young people had to show enough initiative and drive to plan a physical and intellectual challenge, from climbing Snowdon to volunteering abroad, and to raise a portion of the money to carry it out.
The challenges can be provided by the Scout or Guide Association, schools, universities, medical electives or gap year schemes arranged by charities or specialist organisations.
Interviews take place in April and the decision is announced in May.
Prospective applicants can request a form by writing to Alan Taylor at 57A Loom Lane, Radlett.
The deadline for applications is March 31.
