Put energy into applying for slice of funding grant

Have your say

Schools, residents clubs and other groups had better be quick if they want to apply for funding to go green.

Energy company E.On is urging people in Sheffield to put forward nominations for cash from the Energy Action Fund, designed to help grass roots community organisations manage their energy consumption.

The deadline has been extended and members of the public have until tomorrow to put forward environmentally-friendly projects which would benefit from the cash.

Anything from putting insulation in a church hall to organising an educational school trip will be considered for sums of up to £2,000.

Amy Cross, a project leader for E.On, said: “This is a great opportunity for local organisations to take charge of their energy usage and it is our way of showing our support for the people of Sheffield.

“We hope the E.On Energy Action Fund will help to improve energy efficiency, which can save money and reduce energy use across the community.

“We’re keen to help as many people as possible across the area.”
