Wokingham schools appeal for Greenredeem points to earn a share of £2,000.
Between now and June 30th the £2,000 grant fund will be distributed based on the amount of Greenredeem points generously donated by members in the Borough
The 5 schools (All Saints CE (Aided) Primary School, Oaklands Junior School, The Colleton Primary School, Evendons Primary School & Robert Piggott C of E School) are all asking for Greenredeem member's help to develop different projects at their schools. From improving recycling facilities, to supporting eco group initiatives, or building outdoor growing spaces, there are a variety of exciting and interesting projects that Wokingham Borough residents can help to make happen.
Residents that 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 Borough that aren't Greenredeem members can sign up in a matter of minutes at the Greenredeem website.
Last year's scheme saw over 600k points donated - equivalent to over 12 trucks of recycling collected from Wokingham Borough residents, with Winnersh Primary School picking up a cheque for £1,000 supporting the school's aim of developing a sensory garden.
Executive member for the Environment, Cllr Angus Ross said, "We're really pleased to see the popular school donations scheme being re-introduced in 2017. I really hope that Wokingham residents will be recycling as much as they can to earn points to donate to these 5 great schools. To see these schools benefit benefitting and more waste being recycled is a real win-win for Wokingham Borough".
Greenredeem's Director of Marketing & Communications, Rob Crumbie said, "Each year we're blown away by the generosity of Wokingham Borough members and we're really hoping that members will dig deep to help all the projects in this year's scheme. There's some great schools to support and we look forward to helping the young people of the Wokingham Borough.
