A local housebuilder has launched a scheme to support deserving community initiatives in Tamworth.
Redrow Midlands, which is currently building at Amington Garden Village on Boundary Drive, has created the £5,000 community fund to support as many local groups, organisations and individuals as possible, and is now welcoming applications. They say that there's no cause too small, so whether funds are required for art supplies to help local pupils to get creative, to make repairs to a community centre or to support a local foodbank, Redrow Midlands' initiative can help.
The initiative, created this year, also aims to help local organisations recover from the financial impact of the pandemic, and give them the tools they need to thrive again. Elaine Cartwright, sales director, said: "We always try to do our bit to help create thriving communities around our developments, but in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, we knew we had to step up and offer our help - which is why we've created the community fund.
"Many worthy community initiatives rely on donations or fundraising events, so it's been an incredibly difficult year for them. We'd like to invite volunteers at local charities or community groups to share their story with us, and tell us how we can help them get back on their feet so they can continue to do the thing they do best - supporting their community."
