The judges, from Hall and Woodhouse, and from local partners Sussex Newspapers, Spirit FM and the Sussex Community Foundation, worked through nearly 300 applications before making their decisions.

They were looking for groups which fulfilled a real need, had made efforts to raise money for themselves, and would genuinely benefit from a grant.
