With the Buy Local Brigade Grant programme now finished, here is a full list of all successful brigades, and what they applied for.

The programme was so successful, that we approved 263 applications, rather than the 200 we had on offer. It was a big year for getting equipment out to brigades! All equipment was sourced from local suppliers, and funded by ticket sales and donations.
