Two bowls clubs are among organisations benefiting from £19,000 of council funding.
Meldreth Bowls Club and Steeple Morden Bowls club have been awarded grants from the South Cambridgeshire District Council community chest fund.
Meldreth will use their £1,038 to fund repairs to their pavilion, while at Steeple Morden a £600 investment will be made in new heaters.
The community chest fund supports projects that improve the local environment and help build a stronger sense of community.
Cllr Ray Manning, Leader of South Cambridgeshire District Council, said: “We appreciate that funding is becoming increasingly tough for the voluntary sector and hope these grants will help them get their projects under way.
