Royal Borough schools can turn trash into cash!Greenredeem, the company behind the Royal Borough's recycling rewards programme is inviting schools in the Royal Borough to apply for cash grants as part of the school donation programme. In total, grants of up to £3k are available this year, with spot prizes of £250 available for schools that got that extra mile to collect points.
Residents in the Royal Borough that are Greenredeem members will be able to donate their points from the 1st January 2017 - with the school that's top of the class picking up a cheque for £1,500 in July. In the last school donations scheme, Royal Borough residents generously donated over 3m points, with St. Edmund Campion Primary School picking up a cheque for £1,500 supporting the school's drive to install renewable energy sources.
Greenredeem is encouraging applications from all schools in the Royal Borough, and rather than funding a specific project, a grant can be used to support wider projects in the school. Since launch in 2009, the school donations scheme has supported a wide variety of projects including growing areas, outdoor play schemes, Bee zones and African growing gardens, to name but a few.
Making an application for the scheme is easy, and schools are encouraged to fill out the application form that can be found on the Greenredeem website. Greenredeem's Director of Marketing & Communications, Rob Crumbie said, "We're always surprised by the generosity of Greenredeem members in donating their points to schools, and welcome more applications for the scheme starting in January. This popular scheme always receives a high level of applications and we're looking forward to seeing how we can help more schools next year".
