Our Goole Community Fund helps more community groups

Seven community organisations in Goole received a funding boost from the Yorkshire Water Goole Community Fund last week.

Yorkshire Water has been carrying out a £3.8m improvement project at the pumping station on Carr Lane in Goole to improve resilience during times of heavy rain and the fund was set up by the company to thank local people for their patience whilst the work was carried out.

The fund is providing grants from £100 to £2500 to community groups from the Goole area to carry out projects covering a range of areas including environmental improvements, education and work with vulnerable people.

The organisations that received grants from the Goole Community Fund are:
 
•    Goole Solo Club
•    The Sobriety Project
•    Goole Community Group
•    Ilkeston Avenue Allotment Association
•    Goole RUFC
•    Goole town Cricket Club
•    Goole First World War Research Group

Lee Pitcher, Head of Waste Water Services at Yorkshire Water said, “We launched the Goole Community Fund to thank local residents for their patience whilst we carried out major improvements to Carr Lane pumping station. These local community groups received grants which will enable them to work on a variety of projects to benefit the town.  We’re delighted to hear that some of the organisations who received grants from the previous round of funding are well underway with their projects to help benefit the community in Goole.”

To allocate the funding Yorkshire Water created an independent panel of local community representatives which was chaired by local MP Andrew Percy.

Commenting at the cheque presentation ceremony, Andrew Percy said, “This fund has supported a number of local groups, with some really positive projects across Goole and I would like to thank everyone who applied.

The fund was created in recognition of the inconvenience residents experienced and I’m continuing to work closely with Yorkshire Water on their wider plans in the town to address flooding concerns.”
