Helping the community go green

We support local schools & organisation with green projects. Let us know if you need help with yours.

Community

What is the Green Goals Project?

The award-winning Green Goals project is a unique partnership linking football, education and business which aims to improve the local environment, raise environmental awareness and deliver benefits for the community as a whole. Funding up to a maximum of £5000 can be applied for individual projects which contribute towards improving opportunities for active travel (walking, cycling etc.).

These projects help remove barriers which prevent residents/visitors choosing alternatives to the car when travelling around the local area, helping people keep fit and to improve their local environment.

You can apply for funding online by completing the Green Goals Getting About Community Fund Application Form and returning either via email or post. Alternatively contact Linda Maguire on 01202 451165 for further information. Terms and conditions apply. Some projects that have been funded are:

The Nectar Sector & Wildlife Strip, Avonbourne School
