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.

Catherine Bartlem said:

"Firstly we would like to thank Coventry University and Coventry 4 Good for their support over the last six months as part of the Coventry University Community Grant Fund.  We are both excited and encouraged by how the project is progressing.

Our job club is called “Fresh Start” (poster below) and was launched autumn 2015 with the aim of preparing people to be ready to make a fresh start in 2016.

We have been building (and will continue to build) a bank of work experience placements covering retail, office/admin, early years, building and charity sector.  These are mainly Coventry based but include one in Leamington (on the bus route from Coventry)."

Eden Girls School are searching for a voluntary/community action project that 50 pupils could plan and deliver over the course of three days. The actual delivery of the project would not be until the 5th May 2016 but the school would like to hear from interested organisations as soon as possible.

There will be no financial cost to the organisation as the School would cover any expenses around painting/planting etc. 
 
If you have a large one-off project that the pupils could get involved with then please contact Sumeira Akram on sumeira.akram@edengirlscoventry.tetrust.org or call 024 7622 0937.
