Melton Community Allotment is a local group that provides opportunities to learn how to grow and cook fresh food.
Nominated for support by Valentine Buffey, treasurer of Melton Community Allotment (MCA), this community project has used the funds to purchase and install a log cabin on site which will be used as a community space for training and social activities all year round.
With an estimated 400 visits in 2018, MCA has reached a stage where a building is needed to meet the growing interest from the community.This volunteer-run group provides opportunities for therapeutic growing and community activity for all in the Melton Mowbray area. The group also donate their surplus edibles to the local foodbank.
As the allotment is completely volunteer-run and receives no funding other than that raised, support from Carling and Everards has been essential to fulfil this project.
Valentine, Melton Community Allotment
We are proudly working with Carling once again to give YOU the chance to access up to £20,000 funding for your local community projects.
All you have to do is nominate a project in your local area and Carling will select projects from across the UK to fund and turn into a reality.
The Carling Made Local campaign is our way of helping make those ideas and grassroots community projects come to life. From revamping the local community centre to kitting out the local search and rescue team, the Made Local Fund can help!
