Lichfield groups benefit from a share of £5,000 funding pot

Two projects in Lichfield are celebrating after sharing a funding pot of more than £5,000.

St Michael’s Primary School has been awarded £2,250 from Central England Co-operative’s Community Dividend Fund to help youngsters learn to use iPads, while the Lichfield Talking News for the Blind project has been given £3,000 for new equipment.

Martyn Cheatle, chief executive of Central England Co-operative, said: “The Community Dividend Fund reflects a key principle of our society, in that we reward the loyalty of our customers by investing in and supporting local communities.

“I would like to urge all of our members to get in touch and put forward a community cause close to their heart for the Community Dividend Fund scheme.”

Groups can apply for funding online.
