Lottery cash supports projects in North Solihull
COMMUNITY projects in North Solihull were among more than 30 schemes in the borough to secure funding from the National Lottery last year.
A total of £9,960 was awarded to St Andrew's Church, at Chelmsley Wood, to help with the creation of a new community garden.
A separate sum of £9,490 was handed to Smith's Wood Primary Academy, again to help with the creation of a green space. In that case the money was to be invested in a sensory garden for use by local people.
In total, 34 schemes received cash from the Lottery's coffers, adding up to more than £400,000.
People can now nominate other deserving causes for the next tranche of funding. Grants are presented in seven different categories: heritage, health, education, the environment, sport, arts and charity.
Suggestions can be made by calling 0207 293 3329 or tweeting @LottoGoodCauses. The deadline for the next round of funding is April 8.
