Big Lottery Funding for Sustainability Hub

Sustainable Dorset receives a boost.

   

We are pleased to announce that we have been granted funding from The Big Lottery’s Awards for All to continue our work promoting sustainability across Dorset. The grant will be used to fund a part-time Community Engagement Officer, Angela Fendley, who will support, coordinate and connect local communities.

Andrew Barker, Chair of Trustees of Sustainable Dorset, said ‘We are delighted to be able to contribute further, through both Angela’s work and our extended website, to raising awareness of the positive role everyone in Dorset can make to a sustainable future for this county

Angela is upbeat about progress that is already being made in Dorset. “I am excited that there is so much going on in the region to be positive about, and I’m looking forward to sharing and celebrating this, and prove through our actions that we can build a place to live where we can thrive without causing harm to our fragile and precious planet.”

We would love to hear from anyone who has a sustainable good news project, story or event to share. And if you know anyone who would like to become involved as a volunteer Sustainability Champion please get in touch as this will help us form direct, personal links with towns and villages across the county, so we can connect and share inspiring stories and ideas from right across the region.
