   Grants Awarded by Wilmslow Town Council    March 12, 2015

During the financial year 2014-15 Wilmslow Town Council has paid a number of grants to local charities, voluntary groups and organisations to support their work and projects.  A summary table of those grants is given below:


Friends of Lacey Green Park


Incredible Edible Wilmslow


The Wilmslow Trust


Cheshire A Capella


Citizens Advice Bureau


Dean Row Guides


Food Friend


Wilmslow Clean Team


The Clink Charity


Wilmslow Show


Transition Wilmslow


Wilmslow Business Group Events Team


Incredible Edible Wilmslow






The grants awarded range in size as do the types of projects and groups supported.

The funding provided to the Citizens Advice Bureau allows Wilmslow’s residents to gain invaluable advice and support by having access to weekly drop-in sessions as well as other sessions when a pre-booked appointment is required.

Co-ordinated by members of St Bartholomew’s Church, Food Friend provides much needed short-term support in the SK9 area for individuals and families who find themselves in difficulties until they are able to access benefits or employment.  At the time of its last application for funding Food Friend was supporting around 100 such individuals/families.

The Friends of Lacey Green Park were awarded £1,040 to cover set-up costs including insurance, litter picking equipment, publicity and other materials required by the group to help to keep the Lacey Green Park area tidy.

Wilmslow Clean Team is a group of volunteers which helps keep Wilmslow tidy by organising litter picking events twice a month.  The Group is independent of local councils, sets its own priorities and encourages local residents and businesses to take responsibility for their environment.
