Warwickshire Wildlife Trust successfully secured funding from the Coventry University and Coventry 4 Good grant scheme (Round 1) to support their Vision Volunteering project.
Matthew Cox, Youth Engagement Officer for Warwickshire Wildlife Trust said:
"The Vision Volunteering project in Hillfields has been running every Wednesday since the beginning of January 2016. The turnout from students at the University has been very consistent which has meant that we have already achieved a lot. So far 101 volunteer hours have been contributed to the area.
For the first half of the project we have been working on a community centre garden (pictured below), East Street pocket park litter pick and flower beds off Victoria road. As of the beginning of March the project has also extended to Leigh Street allotments on a Monday afternoon where there is some great opportunities for students and local community members to mix.
