New Windfall Fund to be launched on Saturday 13th April

The Windfall Fund will be launched at our new premises on Broadway in Accrington on Saturday 13th April 2013 from 11.00am to 3.00pm.

The Windfall Fund is a community benefit fund that has been established from proceeds from the new 12 turbine wind farm on Oswaldtwistle Moor. It is being provided by EnergieKontor and managed by Prospects Foundation on their behalf.

Community groups throughout Hyndburn will be able to apply to the Fund towards environmental projects within the Borough. Groups will have to be formally constituted and have their own bank account to be able to apply.

Come along to the launch and find out more about our 6 themes of environmental sustainability (Biodiversity, Energy, Sustainable Transport, Waste & Recycling, Local Food and Raising Environmental Awareness) and how your group/organisation might be able to benefit.

Application forms, criteria and guidance notes etc will be available to download from our website (www.prospectsfoundation.org.uk) from 13th April 2013 and the first closing date for applications will be Friday 10th May 2013.

So start planning and come along to the launch to find out more!
