Hanson Urges Group Applications for Community Funding

Delyn MP David Hanson is urging local community groups to apply for the B&Q ‘One Planet Living’ Awards. Local groups could apply for an award of between £1,000 and £10,000 of B&Q products.

David Hanson said:

“I welcome this new scheme which allows environmental groups, community organisations, schools, charities and sports clubs can all apply for materials and funding.

“The B&Q Award materials will be given to projects supporting the environment, biodiversity, natural habitats, wildlife, local culture and local heritage.

“This year there will be two additional awards of £5,000 to schools which submit innovative science-based proposals, showing a real understanding about the environment and the importance of tackling climate change.

“I want to encourage local groups in Delyn to apply for the awards.”
