New rakes, a sensory garden and furniture - grants given to three local causes
Three Norfolk and Suffolk projects will share more than £3,000 in the latest payout from a cooperative fund.
Brundall Allotment Association has been given more than £2,000 in the funds from Central England Cooperative’s Community Dividend Fund.
They will use the cash to buy a range of machinery for their community allotments, such as litter pickers, rakes and hedge cutters.
The Wellbeing Day Centre, in Lowestoft, will use £700 to help support a vital project to make a sensory garden accessible in all weathers to residents with dementia.
Another £465 will be given to Dersingham Village Centre to pay for new furniture.
It came as part of a total a £43,000 handed out to 40 causes across 16 counties.
Brad Tuckfield, Brundall Store manager, said he was “delighted” to see the causes rewarded.
Grants of between £100 and £5,000 are handed out every three months to a wide range of applicants.
