Is your community or school up for the challenge?

Admin 2 Foyle, Press Releases, Stormont

Environment Minister Mark H Durkan is encouraging local community groups and schools to apply to the 2015-16 Challenge Fund.
The Fund is now open for applications from community groups, and Nursery, Primary and Secondary level schools across the North. There are two categories, Community Action and Environmental Education.
Applications are encouraged from those who have not previously benefited from the fund, particularly those which seek to provide assistance to vulnerable groups e.g. elderly, disabled, economically deprived.
At the recent launch of the £300,000 funding boost for local community environment projects, Environment Minister Mark H Durkan said: “This is a great opportunity to support the tireless legions of grass roots organisations and schools who are passionate about improving their own environment.
“I have seen at first hand the value of the work carried out by these groups. I have been highly impressed by the levels of partnership working and volunteer enthusiasm. I commend them for this work.”
