They include Papworth and District Day Centre (£2,680), the Bridge Money Advice Centre (£2,680), Somersham and District Day Care Centre (£2,640), Huntingdon's In Town Centre (£2,230), Ramsey and District Community Bus Association (£2,080), Hunts CAMTAD (£1,870), Earith Day centre (£1,790), Carers UK - Huntingdonshire (£1,790), Brampton Memorial Day Centre (£890), St Neots Abuse Project (SNAP) (£670) and Bluntisham Luncheon Club (£530).
The grants will be paid to the organisations in February.
