SCHOOLS and community groups in Huddersfield have been allocated a share of £43,000 in Big Lottery funding.
The Big awards are funding of between £300 and £10,000 to social and environmental projects that will benefit communities.
Crow Lane Parents’ and Teachers’ Association in Milnsbridge has been allocated more than £8,000 to provide a series of out of school activities and a parenting course for local families.
Vanessa White, Big Lottery Fund’s Head of the Yorkshire and Humber region, said: “This month’s round of awards features yet more great examples of community groups making a huge difference with a relatively small grant. I’d like to encourage any community groups in need of funding of less than £10,000 to get in touch to discuss your project.”
Golcar Parochial Church Council also received funding to replace the toilet facilities in the church building to meet disabled access requirements. This will enable the building to be more accessible to a wider section of the community.
Also tapping into the cash pool was Hade Edge Junior and Infant School in the Holme Valley, which has been awarded nearly £10,000 to provide a community garden including outdoor play and extracurricular learning facilities for children at the school, after-school clubs and the wider community.
Other projects include outdoor play equipment at Birkby Junior and Infant School, and an outdoor classroom for St Thomas Primary School in Bradley.
