Good causes

Light Oaks Infant School

We are an infant school at the heart of the community for children aged 3-7 years old.

We live in a modern, digital society and desperately need to update our technology to enable us to educate the children of the 21st century. We need to replace our outdated technology with laptops and iPads. The only barrier to our school is funding. Our budgets are under increased pressure making it impossible to fund without help.

Claremont Alleygaters

We are a group of Claremont residents who support each other in cleaning up and improving the gated alleyways behind our houses. Our aim is to provide a safe place for our children to play and to provide somewhere for residents to sit out in the summer months.

To keep the alleyways clear we work closely with the council who collect the rubbish we clear. We also encourage all our members to recycle as much as possible and take surplus items to the tip.

Everyone involved in our working parties is presented with a Claremont Alleygaters badge.

We would like to purchase seats and tables for residents to use in the summer as well as planters and flowering plants to brighten up the alleyways. If we have enough money we would like to employ a local painter and decorator to paint the brick walls to brighten up the environment.

Friends of Buile Hill Park

Friends of Buile Hill Park aim to work with local people and interested parties in order to improve the park and make it a better place for the public.

We need funds to be able to deliver a program of events throughout 2018 - the Oak Anniversary of Buile Hill park in its current form.

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.
