Our FUNds 4 communities’ panel met for the second time yesterday and looked at seven new applications. We are really pleased that nearly all were offered funding for community projects in and across Peterborough. Those who have already received funding include: a group of parents who are using the funding to set up a toy library, a residents association who have purchased a Wii-fit and accessories to bring the community together for games nights, and a group of residents who are using the funding to help pay for activities at the Westraven festival.
FUNds 4 communities’ offers funds of between £150 and £2000 to be used for community development activities. At least 50% of the people benefitting from the project need to be Cross Keys Homes’ tenants. For more information you can contact me on 0800 803 0357 or 01733 385059.
Our next panel are due to meet in six weeks so if you would like to apply please get in touch.
