Roos Wind Farm Community Fund opens for applications
Charitable and community organisations have a new source of funding thanks to the successful completion of the Roos Wind Farm in East Holderness.
RES, the British independent renewable energy company that developed the nine turbine wind farm, has established a Community Fund to provide £36,000 per year (index linked) to support local community projects during the lifetime of the wind farm.
Applications to the Fund are invited from groups and projects who can demonstrate that their activities benefit the communities living and working within 5km of Roos Post Office. This area includes, but is not limited to, the parishes of Burton Pidsea, Rimswell, Halsham and Roos.
The Fund is initially open for applications until 5 January 2015. A panel made up of representatives from the area of benefit will then meet in February to consider applications and award grants.
Application forms and guidelines can be downloaded from the ERVAS website at www.ervas.org.uk, or obtained by emailing judithX@ervas.org.uk, or writing to: Roos Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund, ERVAS Morley's Cottage, Morley's Yard, Walkergate, Beverley HU17 9BY.
