The Creme of Nature Community Grant Award, supported by Colures magazine and Voice of Africa Radio 94.3FM, is funded by the Colomer Group and has been created to recognise and support community cohesion and social inclusion within the African Caribbean community. The award is an opportunity for organisations and groups to turn their brilliant ideas into reality and make a real difference to real people’s lives.
