Philippine Guardians Democrats Incorporated
This is a Filipino organisation which aims to help the community and the members by carrying out litter picking in streets, subways and parks.
If we were successful in getting the funding, we’d use it to purchase safety equipment, recyclable containers and cleaning materials.
Seedley and Langworthy In Bloom
Our group undertakes a community greening project that provides plants along Langworthy Road. We ensure that 90 barrier baskets and street sign planters are in full bloom during the summer months. The project significantly brightens up the area, and the main route through the Langworthy ward.
The project is entirely volunteer led and has been in operation for 12 years. We enter the annual 'North West In Bloom' scheme and have received many awards as a result of our efforts. We also work with local schools and encourage local participation in the scheme.
We currently have around 30 volunteers directly involved and we work with two local schools to involve young people. The project has wide benefit to residents of the Langworthy and Seedley wards and visitors to the area.
We would like funding to buy compost and flowers.
Pendleton Platinum Morris Dancing Troupe
Pendleton Platinum Morris Dancing Troupe was formed just over five years ago and compete in competitions across the North West. The purpose was to create a place for the community to come together through dance. There are four dancing lines within the troupe, ranging from the age of 4 to 40+. We need funds for new dresses, these cost up to pounds 5000 and a new music system, shakers (pom poms) bells, laces, dance shoes and other equipment.
