   Headley Playground awarded grants!!!    19 December, 2013

We received the fantastic news this week that we have been awarded two grants which we applied for - £12,000 from Mole Valley District Council's capital grants scheme, and £12,000 from the London Marathon Charitable Trust.  These announcements are a great boost to our fundraising and will mean that the playground project has now raised over £50,000 of our £60,000 target.  This guarantees we can make an early start on the refurbishment, but will continue fundraising to make sure we can deliver the full design for the children in our village.

We are very grateful for the support of both organisations and to the many people who have dug deep and given donations, or supported our fundraising efforts.

The funds will be used to re-equip the playground which has reached the end of its natural life, and in a small rural community, the playground is such an important facility for families and visitors.

Our Playground Steering Group Chairman, Jane Jenkins spoke very excitedly this week about the news, and also recently announced that her husband John will be running a 50 mile Ultra-Marathon on 4th May next year in aid of the project.  We wish him every success and hope you will support him in this worthy cause - his website for donations is:-https://mydonate.bt.com/events/johnjenkins
