Charity’s helping hand for Woolton groups

Using a red watering can to water flowers at home in the garden

 

Voluntary groups in Woolton are being invited to apply for funding from a charity established to improve recreation and education in the neighbourhood.

The Woolton Educational and Recreational Charity is using the interest on the proceeds from the sale of Woolton Village Club in 2000 to make awards to local groups.

This year it is anticipated that about £14,000 will be available from the Charity.

Among the groups to benefit last year were:

• St. James Pre-School – £716 for educational materials
• The Woolton Society – £936 for the printing of a book about the Woolton quarries
• The Woolton Youth Centre – £2871 for the provision of sporting and play equipment
• Woolton in Bloom – £5000 for planters, baskets and floral tableaux
• Friends of Gateacre – £3950 for planting and watering of floral displays
• Woolton Community Resource Centre – £2185 for the provision of books and promotional materials

Applications should be made by 28 February 2017. Application forms can be obtained from Mr. R. Thomaides, Liverpool City Council, Municipal Buildings, Dale Street L2 2DH (Tel: 0151 233 0470) or email robin.thomaides@liverpool.gov.uk
