Glastonbury charity Children’s World is delighted to announce that they have been awarded £45,000 from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund, which they will use to run a new ‘Creative Community’ project. The project has also received funding of £4,000 from Comic Relief COVID-19 Community Fund (England) via Groundwork UK and £2,500 from the Wessex Water Recovery Fund via the Somerset Community Foundation.
Charity director, Kristen Lindop, said, “We are thrilled to have received these generous grants and can’t wait to start working alongside our community of Somerset families and organisations and children and young people to design, develop and deliver new types of the performance based activities that Children’s World is famous for. Our community is likely to face issues due to the pandemic for some time, so it is brilliant news that we will be able to work alongside the people we support, to make sure we provide the fun and educational activities that they will get the most out of.”
Children’s World will be asking families and young people across Somerset to take part in the project at every step of the way and will start consulting with them this month, using questionnaires, social media and meetings.
