Community Chest November Winner

We are delighted to announce that Friends of Croyland Gardens & The Lost Zoo have been awarded November's Community Chest prize.

The Friends of Croyland Gardens and the Lost Zoo aim to enhance the Croyland Gardens area in Wellingborough and protect the local history still contained there, with members of the committee helping to formulate plans for the future and ongoing upkeep of the gardens.

Sarah Mullen, Chair of Friends of Croyland Gardens & The Lost Zoo, said, “The Friends of Croyland Gardens and the Lost Zoo was founded in 2013 by a group of community minded individuals.  The aim of our group is to make environmental enhancements to Croyland Gardens and Friars Close Pocket Park and to fundraise for projects to improve these areas.  Money such as that kindly donated to us from the Community Chest will go towards community events and further fund raising for the area.”

Each month, one community cause, club or charity will be selected to receive £100 from Swansgate. So whether you're fundraising for a particular event or mission or would like some extra cash for your local club, make your nomination!

To nominate, fill out a card and post in the entry box by the Community Noticebox (in between Wilko & Home Bargains).You can nominate until the end of each month, where one nomination will be chosen to receive £100. The chosen cause will be announced on our website here and on our Facebook page at the beginning of the next month.
