HUC formally signs up to the White City Big Local Partnership - September 12, 2013
4th September was a historic moment – Mike Smith, HUC’s Chairman and Garry McMillan, the Chair of the White City and Wormholt Big Local Partnership Board signed the formal Memorandum of Understanding which commits HUC to match funding the Big Local programme.
Over the next 10 years, The Big Lottery will invest £1 million in the White City and Wormholt area. HUC will match this with another £1 million over those 10 years.
The Big Local programme will be formally launched at the White City Festival on 15 September. We are very excited about this programme which will bring exciting new developments for and by local residents. The programme will include a befriending scheme, increased opportunities for children and young people, opening up the green spaces to food growing and recreation and improving resident access to employment and training. The programme will be supported by a new full time worker – watch this space for further details coming soon.
