Sleaford REP Power Fund: latest awards
Sleaford Bowls Club, Leadenham Hockey Club and the Hale Magna Village Hall are the latest beneficiaries from the Sleaford REP Community Power Fund. The £125,000 Fund was set up in 2020 to support community groups and projects - primarily in the areas of environment, sport, education and social well-being - within a five mile radius of the Sleaford power station. The Fund is provided by Schroders Greencoat, Sleaford REP's owners and one of the country's largest investors in renewable energy and resource efficiency.
Sleaford Bowls Club secured money for a green-keeping machine and equipment to help disabled people play bowls at the Club. Leadenham Hockey Club secured a grant for a gazebo, for use at their matches and the Village Hall secured money for solar panels.
Grants of up to £5000 are available so if you know of a group or a project that could benefit from the Power Fund, please visit n-kesteven.gov.uk/communityfunding for further information on how to apply.
