Space 2 Grow#2 was the first Micro Fund, an opportunity for members to apply for up to £500 in a quick and simple way, to meet the needs or organsiations for equipment or event that other funding may not always allow.  

This was a popular fund, over subscribed, which led the independent funding panel to make some hard decisions on which applications to fund.
