A sustainable living scheme in Norwich and a village primary school have welcomed a cash boost.
Grown Our Own (GO2), based in the The Avenues, and Fairhaven Primary School will both receive £500 as part of Anglian Home Improvements' #50for50 campaign, which will see it donate the cash to 50 local causes for its 50th anniversary.
Mahesh Pant, founder of GO2, said the cash would keep the initiative, which relies on grants, running.
'In order to keep GO2 running, we rely heavily on funding which is getting more difficult every year,' he said. 'Contributions of this kind from local businesses are extremely important to us and without them we wouldn't be able to continue the good work we do in the local community.'
Meanwhile, Janice Dix, headteacher at Fairhaven Primary, said the cash would be spent on much-needed resources.
