GROW is branching out in 2013


Knutsford GROW is delighted to announce it has received a grant from the BIG Lottery Fund to extend its service into Bexton Ward and Warren Avenue in Knutsford.

Knutsford GROW has received a grant from the BIG Lottery Fund to extend its service into Bexton Ward and Warren Avenue in Knutsford. The BIG Lottery Fund has provided funding to support a yearlong pilot project in the new area. A new part-time Coordinator is being sought (the only paid person on the project) to set up the new area from scratch.  Once they are in place they will be extending the service so if you are or know someone who might benefit or would like to volunteer please email us. We need volunteer gardeners of all abilities, help with admin or by being a trustee.  Volunteering won’t affect any unemployment benefits you may be on and looks good on your CV or university applications. We ensure that volunteering for GROW benefits our volunteers by providing training and encouragement as well as the residents who have nicer gardens and are less isolated as a result. Anyone interested in the Coordinator role, should email for further details.

The Big Lottery Fund is the largest distributor half of National Lottery good cause funding across the UK.  The Fund aims to enable others to make real improvements to communities and the lives of people most in need.
