Grant applications sought from green-thinking Royal Borough schools

Grant applications sought from green-thinking Royal Borough schools

Philip Dewey

Grant applications are being sought by the Royal Borough from schools looking to become greener.

The Greenredeem schools donations programme was launched four years ago and has given more than £10,000 to schools in Windsor and Maidenhead.

The grants have been made as a result of Greenredeem points donation from Royal Borough residents gained through recycling.

Cllr Carwyn Cox (Con, Hurley and Walthams), cabinet member for environmental services, said: "I am thrilled local schools can benefit from residents' generously donating their Greenredeem points.

"Through the spot prizes smaller schools are also in with a chance to 'win' through Greenredeem points. And the more residents recycle, the more Greenredeem points they can earn."

Last year Eton Wick CE First School, in Sheepcote Road, received a grant of £1,000 to enhance its environmental area 'Zone Bee'.

The winners will be chosen in the 2015 summer term, with first place receiving £1,500, second place receiving £1,000 and third place receiving £500.
