Schools and charities in Exmouth that are missing out on funding are being given the opportunity to apply for some extra dough, from a local family baker.Brace's Bakery, which is celebrating its 106th birthday, has set up the 'Bread for the Community Birthday Fund' offering local organisations a dough-nation of £106. Michelle Hughes, head of communications for Brace's, said: "As a family business, we are dedicated to supporting the community in any way we can. Our birthday community fund has been a successful initiative so far but we would like to see more applications from Exmouth as we want to spread the funds across our whole distribution area."Applications for Brace's sponsorship must come from an organisation unable to benefit from large national funding sources, and not an individual. The sponsorship requests must also meet a specific need or be used to complete a specific project and not simply be used towards general funds.To apply for a slice of Brace's 'Bread for the Community Birthday Fund' visit www.bracesbakery.co.uk.
