Community fund

The Kingston Burrowes Community Fund

We are delighted to announce that our team have voted, and the winners of the 2020 Kingston Burrowes Community Fund have now been selected.

The £250 cash grants have been awarded to the following local community organisations:

EcoLocal, an organisation based in Carshalton which aims to achieve and sustain strong vibrant communities within a healthy environment. The funding will be specifically used for the ‘repair and enhance’ project at the Carshalton community allotment. At this half-acre food growing space, volunteers will enhance areas for wildlife, make repairs to food growing beds and improve the appearance of the community space.

INSPIRE Sport, a non-profit organisation dedicated to delivering multi-sports sessions to anyone with additional needs. They provide a safe, all-inclusive, active, fun environment where participants are given the opportunity to experience different sports skills, learn how to follow rules, work with partners and small groups and improve their fitness and wellbeing. The funding will be used to purchase a variety of sports equipment for members.

The Kingston Burrowes Community Fund has now been running for the last three years and we are pleased to have supported several fantastic local organisations. The initiative aims to provide funding to projects that have clear benefit to the community, whether it involves work with young children, the elderly, those with disabilities or the environment and community spaces.
