Funds on offer to community groups in Rugby

A COMMUNITY fund to support deserving local groups in Rugby is open to applications.

Housebuilder Redrow Midlands, which is currently building homes at Houlton, is offering shares of its £7,500 Community Fund to support local groups, organisations and individuals.

The fund aims to support local organisations with specific donations and give them the tools they need to continue to thrive.

Since its launch in 2021, the initiative has donated money to the Rugby branch of the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain to help families adjust to their new surroundings, funded gardening equipment to help pupils at Abbots Farm Junior School and Houlton School grow their own plants and vegetables, and paid for camping equipment to allow the 1st Houlton Guides to explore and learn more about nature.

The housebuilder’s Sales Director Elaine Cartwright said: “We’re always looking for new ways we can help support thriving communities in the local area.

“Following the success of the community fund over the last three years, we knew we had to bring it back again this year.

“We’re now inviting charities and community groups in the area to share their stories with us and let us know what they need to keep doing their fantastic work – we want to provide support in the most helpful way we can.

“We’re looking forward to hearing how we can help people in Rugby and the surrounding areas.”

The fund is now open and will close at 11:59pm on Friday September 27.
