Major funding success
Substantial funding approved for extensive renovations at Boston Spa Village Hall, West Yorkshire from Biffa Award.
The trustees of Boston Spa Village Hall are delighted to announce they have received over £100,000 of funding primarily from Biffa Award and supported by the Garfield Weston Foundation, the Bernard Sunley Foundation & Boston Spa Parish Council.
Biffa Award is a multi-million-pound fund that helps to build communities and transform lives through awarding grants to communities and environmental projects across England and Northern Ireland as part of the Government's Landfill Communities Fund.
The grant monies will be used to help reduce our carbon footprint and renovate the Jubilee Room. Planned work includes installing new uPVC windows, creating a new insulated ceiling, reconfiguring the toilets to provide three unisex toilets and one fully accessible toilet with baby changing facilities, electrical work to replace old wiring and installing new LED lighting and redecoration.
Carol Taylor, chair of the trustees of Boston Spa Village Hall CIO believes the facility will make a huge difference to the lives of people living in the area.
She says: “This project will provide a real boost to the people of Boston Spa. It’s fantastic that these organisations have awarded us this money and we’re really looking forward to our Village Hall taking shape over the next 3 months.”
Rachel Maidment, Biffa Award Grants Manager, said: Biffa Award takes immense pride in backing projects like the one at Boston Spa Village Hall, recognizing their vital role in supporting their community, bringing people together and giving them the opportunity to share experiences. Projects like this provide the means for a community to thrive ensuring a brighter future for all that use the space.”
