Ardagh wins £200,000 funding

Two grants totalling £200,000 have been awarded to The Ardagh Community Trust, securing funding to regenerate the site and facilities on Horfield Common into a community and sports facility that will benefit local people for years to come.  

Rob Savage, project manager at The Ardagh, said: “This is down to the timeless commitment of a steadfast bunch of volunteers. It’s hats off to everybody involved, especially in this climate of cuts.”

A Power to Change endowment of £170,000 has been granted by the National Lottery which will support 75 per cent of the project to improve the cafe and create a community hub. A further £30,000 from Big Potential will fund a look into the best way to improve the sports and community facilities.
