I am calling on Fareham residents to vote for a community project that they want to see funded.The Aviva Community Fund, launched earlier this year, took nominations for a number of community projects in Fareham. Now the public is being asked to vote for the project that should receive a cash prize.
Winners will be chosen from those that receive the most public votes and will receive up to £25,000.
This is a great opportunity for people to help a project get some much needed funding and make a difference to the local community. People should get their votes in before the 21st November deadline.
The Fareham nominations include:
- The Rainbow Centre – a local based charity that works with children with cerebral palsy and other motor disorders. Funding would help the charity to continue helping local children.
- Portchester Community School – needs funding to replace the sports hall floor so the local community can continue to access the facility for sports, daytime childcare and other uses. The refurbishment will also include better entrances (ramps) to the facilities for wheelchair users.
- Titchfield Community Association – wants to refurbish its busy community centre which is currently used by everyone from groups of new mothers to senior citizens and others.
- Acts of Kindness – a charity based in Titchfield that provides food, clothing and household items to those in need. The charity is currently working on a project with the fire service to be able to provide a co-ordinated response when fires or flooding occurs.
- Park Gate Primary School Association - raises money for the provision of additional facilities for the children of Park Gate Primary. The group is applying for funding to add a large canopy next to the main school playground. This will be used by the whole school at play and lunchtimes, and by the children of Key Stage 1 during lesson times.
- Sairsbury Green Scout Group – are looking for funding to build a new Scout Hut. The group has been without a Scout Hut of its own for a number of years since the redevelopment of the site where our previous hut was located.
- Locks Heath Lions – is voluntary run club with boys and girls starting from the Under 6 age group with Mid Solent League teams through to Under 18. They are looking for funding to the club to keep supporting young people.
