Community Investment Fund Pledges: October-December 2021

In recent months, idverde has worked closely with community groups to support their development projects and bids. Following our pledges, we have helped fund these groups to make greener changes as part of our Community Investment Fund.

Growing Sudley CIC in Liverpool has received £2,000 towards their crowdfunding which had 170 local backers, helping to collect more than £26,000 target. The project hopes to transform the derelict former changing rooms next to the Growing Sudley walled garden into a zero-carbon, community-owned asset for health and wellbeing to help build a connection with nature.

Woodman’s Mews TRA Community Garden in Hammersmith has received £410 from our small grants scheme to support the residents and volunteers with toolkits that will be used to maintain the Community Garden. Recently, Playforce has delivered a £38K Play Improvement to the Community Garden, which included play and gym equipment.

The Greening Hackbridge Project in the London Borough of Sutton has received £1,000 from our Small Grant Scheme to support their In Bloom plans for 2022. The group was also able to secure £29K from the Postcode Lottery with a bid supported by idverde!

Three Closes Tenants Association Allotment Project has received a total of £1.000 from our small grants scheme to support their project in Charnwood. They are hoping to use the grant to provide more space for the local community to enjoy gardening.

The Memorial Rose Garden in Shepton Mallet is receiving £1,000 to create a garden in memory of idverde Gardener, Peter Dredge. The project will also be part of the Green Flag Improvement Plan for Colette Park.

As a massive advocate in the importance of biodiversity, Malvern Crescent Pocket Park Biodiversity Project in Northampton has received £950 from our small grant scheme to help them with their upcoming projects to boost the presence of biodiversity in the local area.
