The Nest Garden Community Project Receives £5000 cash boost
From Heathrow Community Fund
A community project set up to develop and create an outdoor learning garden and nature area has received a £5000 grant from Heathrow Community Fund.
The scheme will allow Holtspur School & Pre-School to complete the Nest Garden project – bring the learning of planting, growing and harvesting to a whole new level. There will be areas for all years to work in the garden and produce their own fruits and vegetables. They will also experience the skills of decomposition, nature and other outdoor learning skills in the perfect environment.
Holtspur School & Pre-School was awarded the donation under Heathrow Community Fund’s Communities for Youth grants programme.
Quote from community project spokesman: “Heathrow Community Fund is part of an independent grant-making charity set up by Heathrow’s owners to support and strengthen local communities close to the airport. In the past two years it has donated more than £1 million through three grant programmes, funding projects which support young people, help protect the environment and support active local communities.
Funds come from an annual donation from the airport, fines imposed on aircraft that breach noise limits, Heathrow colleagues who raise funds for us, and John Lewis.
The fund also supports and encourages Heathrow staff to volunteer and support the local communities where they live.
