Recently, I presented the Cowshill Community Centre with a cheque for over £5,000 from the Northern Powergrid Foundation.
I helped the village right at the top of Weardale receive this money to improve the village hall’s resilience to extreme weather events. The money will be put to good use by spending it on resilience kit to ensure local residents can stay safe, warm and entertained during power interruptions.
With the cold weather beginning to draw in, this money is becoming more and more important.
There is plenty more money that NPG are investing in our towns and villages. I have helped secure almost £100,000 from them for villages and towns in North West Durham. Please get in touch if you help run a community centre, and my team can help you through the application process.
