Cadishead community building
Everyone in the local community is able to use the building for different activities including day care, parties, events, youth clubs, disabled groups and other meetings. The building is run by local people who have the best interest of the community at heart.
We would like funding to install CCTV in and around the building. This is to protect our team, the building and the equipment we have.
We are a Morris dancing troupe. We currently have 65 local children, mainly from underprivileged backgrounds, who are learning to Morris dance. We also teach them discipline, leadership, communication, dedication, respect, and how to work as a team.
They train every week and attend fortnightly competitions, working towards the championships which are held in November.
We would use the funding to help us buy new uniforms for our champions in November.
Salford Friendly Anglers Society is the UK’s oldest angling club – we celebrate turning 200 years old this year. As part of our celebration events we have been restocking The Old River Irwell in Irlam with fish, and also renewing the fishing access platforms so that fishing can continue at this location for years to come.
The group is free to join, and offers free fishing on lakes, rivers and canals in Salford and surrounding areas.
We would like funding to help purchase new fish stock (tench) for the Old River Irwell. This is to replace the fish which were lost in a terrible pollution incident a few years ago.
We offer people on limited budgets access to affordable recycled furniture, white goods and clothing. We also recycle items that would otherwise be placed in landfill, reducing waste and helping the environment.
We currently have a van which we use to provide a free collection and delivery service of furniture. To enable us to extend this service, we would like to purchase a bigger van. We would trade in our existing van to cover some of this cost, and are looking for funding to cover the additional cost.
