Applicants should note that under the law, venue operators cannot play any part in the grant process, any applicants must deal directly with the Redwood Trust. Direct contact with a venue could jeopardise the gaming licence for that venue, and threaten our ongoing funding in the local Marlborough community.

The trustees meet monthly to consider grant applications. Applications must comply with the Gambling Act 2003, the licence conditions made by the Internal Affairs pursuant to the Act, any regulations made under the Act and the Society's policies. The Society reserves the right to decline applications that do not comply with the Act or where funding is not available.

Any complaints regarding the distribution of grant proceeds must be sent in writing addressed to the Redwood Trust c/- PO Box 349, Blenheim. Any complaints received will be considered by the trustees and will be acknowledged in writing after the monthly meeting.
