RED Industries Grant Helps Newcastle Ladsandads
It was great to receive an update from Staffordshire based youth football institution ‘Ladsandads’ on Wednesday this week to say that their Newcastle Branch’s application for a grant had been successful in securing £29,729 from Red Industries Landfill Tax Credit Grant Programme.
HeawardSports Ltd. worked very closely with the Branch to help develop what was an urgent bid to meet the funders fast approaching deadline. Our work included designing and delivering a rapid online and hard copy consultation exercise and drafting the bid itself. The project will provide fencing to fully secure the site following a long history of vandalism, criminal damage, drug use and other anti-social behaviour on their Pool Dam site. The site will also see a new sign and new goals erected giving it a smart fresh appearance.
For the 400 or so young people involved in the branch the project is the first step in transforming their home facilities. It will also have a significant positive impact for residents living next to Pool Dam who’s lives have at times been blighted by the historically high antisocial behaviour on the site.
Congratulations Newcastle Ladsandads, keep up the good work!
