Our sport for change participation programme which through direct delivery of sport and physical activity, aims to improve the health wellbeing and skills of people living in some of our most deprived coalfield communities in Scotland.
Congratulations to our property team on getting the green light for our latest development at the former Kellingley Colliery site. This was the UK's last deep coal mine and we are proud to bring jobs and new business to the former coalfields. https://www.insidermedia.com/news/yorkshire/green-light-for-colliery-regeneration-scheme
Our grant of £14,491 to @RHUBARBFARM1 will enable the organisation to continue delivering their activities tackling food poverty in #Bolsover, as well as expand their capacity to offer training programmes in the community.
We were delighted to award @DurhamCP with £30,000 to expand their vital foodbank service, providing support to residents in #Chester-le-Street and surrounding coalfield communities. @marykfoy
We awarded #EasingtonLaneCommunityAccessPoint a £30,000 contribution towards a new minibus in response to the current pandemic, as they experience unprecedented requests and referrals for their door-to-door shopping bus. @bphillipsonMP
