Grant will benefit community

A $25,000 grant for the Valley Project from the Otago Community Trust will help with many community initiatives such as Kai Share, the HeatSeekers drop-in clinics and CreekFest.

Many different community initiatives supported by the Valley Project will benefit from a $25,000 grant from the Otago Community Trust

Kai Share is a weekly food box programme, which distributes food from KiwiHarvest to local families and people in need. The HeatSeekers: Healthy Homes in the Valley weekly drop-in clinics aim to give people the information and help they need to create a warmer, drier and healthier home. CreekFest is an annual the community festival and educational event that celebrates Lindsay Creek.

Valley Project manager Tess Trotter says the funding is a vote of confidence in community-led development.

“We are super-grateful and delighted.”

The discovery of a diesel leak at the Valley Community Workspace was devastating for community members but fortunately was able to be quickly dealt with and stopped.

Most of the $25,000 grant will be used for community initiatives, while $5000 will go directly towards helping deal with and clean-up the recent diesel leak into Lindsay Creek from the Valley Community Workspace building on Allen St, which is owned by the Valley Project.

The Otago Community Trust approved just over $2.1 million to 67 organisations in its latest round of grants.
