Royal Borough schools appeal for Greenredeem points to earn a share of £3,000.
Between now and June 30th the £3,000 grant fund will be distributed based on the amount of Greenredeem points generously donated by members in the Royal Borough.
The six schools (St Mary's Catholic Primary School, Courthouse Junior School, Cookham Nursery School, All Saints Junior School, Cookham Dean Primary School and Homer First School) are all asking for Greenredeem members' help to develop different projects at their schools. From improving recycling facilities to supporting eco group initiatives, creating 'homely' environments or building outdoor classrooms, there are a variety of exciting and interesting projects that Royal Borough residents can help to make happen.
Residents who are Greenredeem members can take part by logging in and donating points on the Greenredeem website, or by calling Greenredeem's customer care on 0844 409 9490. Any residents in the Royal Borough who aren't Greenredeem members can sign up in a matter of minutes at the Greenredeem website.
Last year's scheme saw an amazing three million points donated - equivalent to over 60 trucks of recycling collected from Royal Borough residents, with St Edmund Campion Primary School picking up a cheque for £1,500 supporting the school's drive to install renewable energy sources.
Cllr Carwyn Cox, cabinet member for environmental services, said: "I am delighted borough schools can benefit once again from residents generously donating their Greenredeem points. Supporting local schools is always a popular way for residents to use the points they have earned."We are always looking at ways to get residents recycling more and the more residents recycle, the more Greenredeem points they can donate."
Greenredeem's Director of Marketing & Communications, Rob Crumbie said: "This is now the eighth year we've offered schools the chance to fund projects through our scheme. Each year we're blown away by the generosity of Royal Borough members and we're really hoping that members will dig deep to help all the projects in this year's scheme. There are some great schools to support and we look forward to helping the young people of the Royal Borough."
