At Peddimore, we are committed to delivering a positive impact outside of the physical boundaries of our development. Which is why in 2018, we launched the £270,000 Peddimore Community Fund, to help to strengthen communities and social value impact in surrounding local areas.
The fund awards grants of up to £2,000 to support social welfare, health and well-being initiatives, sports or community projects or formal training and education programmes.
IM Properties have been revisiting some of the Peddimore Community Fund projects, managed by the Heart of England Community Foundation, to see the positive impact the grants which they’ve received are making. We most recently caught up with The Up! Creative, an upcycling group founded by a group of mums working within the Minworth, Falcon Lodge and Sutton Coldfield area, to find out how the £2000 grant which they were awarded by the fund has benefitted their project and the community they serve.
