A playgroup in Lache will help children learn about growing healthy food on a new vegetable patch after winning a competition.
Little Lache Playgroup won the top prize of £2,500 in the Lache Together Live competition organised by Sanctuary Housing.
The competition challenged local groups to create a video about how they would use the winning prize to fund a project addressing the themes of education, health and wellbeing, and the environment.
A panel of residents voted for the winner after watching videos from the playgroup and other groups, including Lache Balmoral Morris Dancers and St Clare’s Catholic Primary School.
Sanctuary Housing resident involvement officer Ann Dooney said: “Congratulations to Little Lache Playgroup, who created an inspirational video which highlighted how they met the funding themes of education, health and wellbeing and environment. All entries were superb and the groups can use the videos for future funding applications.”
Manager of Little Lache Playgroup Kelly Lawrence added: “This will make a massive difference to our setting. A huge thank you to our parents and staff for their support, as well as to Sanctuary Housing for giving us this opportunity.”
