Keswick in Bloom become the 1st Group to receive Clothes Bank Funding in Lakes & Dales.

Keswick in Bloom awarded Clothes Bank Grant

Our first grant in the Lakes and Dales area went to Keswick in Bloom, who were awarded £1000 to purchase materials and equipment for the upkeep of displays over the coming months.

Established in 1993 as a voluntary organisation, the group has taken responsibility for the planting and maintenance of various tubs, towers, mangers and beds around the town.  Planting takes place twice a year to provide fresh displays for Spring and Summer.

Keswick in Bloom has over 20 regular volunteers who are mostly residents of Keswick, but also include regular visitors to the town who are happy to help. The group works closely with local schools and with staff at local parks, lending a hand with maintenance where required.

To apply for a Lakes & Dales Clothes Bank Grant, please email us 200-300 words about your project and what help is required. Don’t forget to include your contact details so we can get back to you!
