Big Lottery Fund boosts good causes in Redditch

September 18, 2018 by  

The Big Lottery Fund is donating £40,000 to four organisations within Redditch.

As a result of the fresh resources from the Big Lottery Fund, Redditch Community Sheds, the Friends of Webheath Academy, Jestaminute Community Theatre, and the Britten Street Hub can all achieve a lot in the future. Local stationery printers can be handy for dynamic organisations in the public sector, the private sector and the third sector.

James Harcourt at the Big Lottery Fund told the Redditch Standard:

“Thanks to National Lottery players, communities large and small are able to get the funding they need to bring their great ideas to life.”

Harcourt explained that every time an individual purchases a lottery ticket funds are accumulated. This money can make a big difference to communities. The county of Worcestershire has acquired £850,000 from the fund. Over 30 projects have gained directly from the investment.

Next Easter, Jestaminute will stage a pantomime. The hope is that the involvement of the local community will promote skills and confidence. This should mean that individuals then have the capacity to produce events in line with their visions.

Redditch Community Sheds is all about helping retired people. Woodwork can help those who no longer do paid work to enjoy the camaraderie that helped to make their careers of interest. Banter and friendship are important for reducing social isolation.
