25 NEW funding zones added to our Enhancing Communities funding programme
Thursday 03 May 2012In 2011 alone the Trust committed over £9.2 million to such disparate projects as saving Wilton’s the world’s oldest surviving Grand Music Hall (East London) from the Heritage at Risk register to providing an improvement grant that led to the re-opening of a community hall in Greenside, Tyne and Wear. Between these two projects come numerous vital improvements to community facilities including roof repairs, central heating installation or replacement, play space creation and enabling volunteers to regenerate their leisure facilities.
