Redrow is donating funds to local community projects!

22 Mar 2018

More South Manchester groups to benefit as Redrow doubles its community fund to £10,000.

More organisations in and around Woodford could be in line for a cash boost after Redrow announced it is to double the amount of money available to applicants of a second community fund.

Nine groups have already received donations totalling over £5,000 from Redrow after the homebuilder launched its original fund at the same time as its impressive Woodford Garden Village development.

Redrow has upped the stakes for the second fund and is inviting more local groups to apply for a slice of £10,000.

Jason Newton, sales director for Redrow Homes (NW), said:

“We had a tremendous response to our previous Woodford fund and it’s been amazing to see what the money can achieve in the community. We’ve helped a range of causes from schools and scout huts to football and rugby teams, and now we’re keen to extend our reach further by increasing the funds available.

“With this in mind we’d like to invite the local community to suggest projects that they think we might be able to help with and we’ll endeavour to provide assistance where we can.”

Redrow wants to offer new support to as many local groups and organisations as possible and will share out the £10,000 budget accordingly.

“This money is in addition to the substantial investment we’re already making in the community through section 106 commitments agreed with the local authority. Woodford Garden Village will feature brand new amenities such as a dedicated health centre, primary school, sports facilities and shops,” Jason explained.  

“The community funds are much more personal and represent direct investment in small projects and supporting individuals and groups who make up the community where we are building. Rather than give all the money to one organisation or project, we’d like to make a number of smaller grants to help as many people as possible. We’re interested to hear what people need – and how it will make a difference.”

The first fund helped support refurbishments at the Woodford War Memorial and Community Centre, funded outdoor equipment at Hursthead Infant School, sponsored Lostock Rangers FC and helped fund new play equipment at Lumb Lane Park in Bramhall as well as helping many other causes.

Alejandra Solis who applied for funds on behalf of The Friends of Lumb Lane Park said:

“The park lies at the heart of a residential estate not far from Redrow’s Woodford Garden Village and the play equipment was previously in a really sorry state. The money donated has enabled us to replace the old equipment with equipment that is more modern, dynamic and challenging and much better meets the needs of local children. We now have a playground that caters for a wider range of children and supports their physical, cognitive, emotional and social development.”

Those wishing to nominate a project for Redrow to consider should email [email protected] to request an application form stating ‘Woodford Community Fund’ in the subject line. The deadline for completed applications is April 30th, 2018.

Woodford is close to the larger towns and villages of Handforth, Bramhall and Poynton, and five miles from Stockport, as well as being conveniently close to road and rail links to Manchester city centre and the rest of the North West.
